§ 64. Mr. Wilkins
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce legislation to provide for the extension of the stipendiary magistracy in the larger boroughs in the country.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
Under Section 29 of the Justices of the Peace Act, 1949, the council of any borough having a separate commission of the peace may petition the Secretary of State for the appointment of a stipendiary magistrate. I see no need for further legislation.
