HL Deb 08 July 1858 vol 151 cc1075-6

On the Motion for the third reading of this Bill,


corrected an error into which he had fallen on a previous evening in stating, on the authority of a noble and learned Friend, as an illustration of the lightness of the duties of some of the County Court Judges, that one of them had been only employed forty-five days in one year. He had since found that the return was for nine months, and not a year, and that by a mistake of the clerk who prepared it forty-five was inserted for 115 days. He thought an employment of 115 days in nine months was not such as to induce their Lordships to think the County Court Judges were overworked, or to sanction an increased salary.

Bill read 3a, and passed.
