DR. RUTHERFORD (Middlesex, Brentford)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the approaching retirement from the Madras High Court of Mr. Justice Bod-dam, a barrister judge of that Court, he will consider the advisability of appointing an Indian barrister in his place and thereby restoring to that Court a second Indian judge, and placing it in that respect on the same footing as the High Courts at Bombay and Allahabad.
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Mr. MORLBY,) Montrose Burghs
In making recommendations for filling the vacancy to which my hon. friend refers, I shall consider all the circumstances of the case, including that which he mentions.
