§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)
I regret that I cannot yet make any announcement as to the appointment, but I hope to be able to do so shortly.
§ Mr. MARTIN
May I ask whether, pending the appointment of the lord lieutenant, the appointments of justices of the peace for the county of London are held up and the proceedings of the Committee, which sat some time ago, rendered nugatory?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I very much regret there is some delay in the matter, but I hope it will not last much longer.
