asked the Attorney-General -whether, in view of the large number of divorce suits still unheard, he will recommend the temporary appointment and payment of members of the Bar of suitable standing to act in a judicial capacity until all divorce petitions filed more than two months ago have been cleared off?
§ The Attorney-General
It is not possible in law to adopt the suggestion made by my hon. Friend. As my hon. Friend will see His Majesty's Government are seeking from Parliament the necessary authority for the appointment of additional Judges of the Probate, Divorce and Admiralty Division.
