HC Deb 20 March 1879 vol 244 c1307

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether Her Majesty's, Government will, during the present Session, proceed to carry out by legislation, wholly or partially, the suggestions made to him on the 7th ult. by a deputation of the Irish Coroners with regard to their position?


Sir, a Bill has, I understand, been introduced on the subject of coroners which does not apply to Ireland; but there appears to be a fair opportunity for considering the case of Irish coroners, as the Bill, I am told, is to be referred to a Select Committee, and I understand that four Irish Members have been selected to serve on that Committee.
