§ Viscount WOLMER
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether his attention has been called to the shortage of magistrates at Warrington county division Petty Sessions; and whether it is intended to appoint any more magistrates for that bench in the near future?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
There are twenty -three magistrates for the County Palatine of Lancaster upon the rota for the Warrington Petty Sessional Division. Appointments to the county bench are usually made on the nomination of the; Lord Lieutenant, who has not intimated to me that any necessity exists for the appointment of more magistrates.
