§ MR. MACVEAGH (Down, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland how many Roman Catholic magistrates there are in the Fintona district, county Tyrone, seeing that the population is not largely Roman Catholic; and if any proposal will be made to the proper authority to increase the number of Roman Catholic magistrates.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
One Roman Catholic magistrate attended Petty Sessions in this district last year. The Lord Chancellor and the Lieutenant of the County will consider any recommendations that may be made to them in favour of the appointment of additional Roman Catholic gentlemen to the Commission.
