HL Deb 11 May 1885 vol 298 c109

asked the Lord Chancellor, If he has noticed the decision of the York Bankruptcy Court, by which the action of a bailiff under the Agricultural Holdings Act, 1883, is limited to the district of the Judge who gave him an authorization, a decision which will cause great inconvenience to those]; bailiffs who usually do business in more than one County Court district; whether the noble and learned Earl would recommend County Court Judges to give their authorization to any bailiff who has already got the authorization of another County Court Judge and who has not misconducted himself since receiving the first authorization; whether the revocation of the authority of a bailiff by one County Court Judge should not carry with it the revocation of an authorization given by any other County Court Judge; and, if it is true that the decision of the York Bankruptcy Court has been reversed on appeal?


said, it was true that the decision to which the noble Lord referred had been reversed on appeal; and, this being so, there was no occasion for any suggestion on his part to the County Court Judges, even if such a suggestion would be otherwise proper.
