§ MR. HAZLETON
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is yet in a position to make any statement with regard to the inclusion of Irish as a subject of examination for clerkships in the High Court of Justice in Ireland.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The subjects of examination for clerkships in the High Court of Justice in Ireland are, in pursuance of statute, to be determined by 438 the Lord Chancellor of Ireland with the concurrence of the Civil Service Commissioners. I am informed that the whole scheme of the examination is under consideration, and the Question of the inclusion of Irish as an optional subject will be carefully considered at the same time. No decision upon the latter point has yet been arrived at.
