§ MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)
I beg to ask the Solicitor General for Ireland whether the Divisional Commissioners still continue on the list of Irish Resident Magistrates; if not, out of what fund is it proposed to pay these officials, and what is the amount of salary and allowance to be paid to each?
§ MR. MADDEN
The four Divisional Commissioners who were Resident Magistrates do not still continue on the list of Resident Magistrates. They are provided for in the Estimate for 1889–90 for County Court Officers, &c. (Ireland), under the head of "executive officers." The salary to be paid to each is £1,000 a year. They are also entitled to be recouped their actual expenses of locomotion, and to receive a subsistence allowance of 21s. for each night necessarily absent from head-quarters on duty. Postage and other incidental expenditure is also refunded to them.
