§ MR. A. C. MORTON
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will grant the Return asked for by the hon. Member for the Maldon Division of Essex, with regard to the number of County Justices appointed since May last?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. W. E. GLADSTONE, Edinburgh, Midlothian)
I doubt very much whether the present is a convenient opportunity of presenting this Return, as it relates to a matter which is in progress, and there is no particular reason for interrupting the progress in order to present the Return. I think the hon. Member had better wait till the completion of the work.
