§ 21. Mr. LAWTHER
asked the Home Secretary if he will, having regard to the extended powers now given to county councils, introduce legislation to give them the power to elect clerks of the peace and assistant clerks of the peace?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Arthur Greenwood)
I have been asked to reply. I have under consideration the question of legislation for dealing with the present position in regard to the appointment of clerks of county councils and clerks of the peace.
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
I am considering that very question now with representatives of the Association affected.
