§ Mr. Carlisle
asked the Attorney-General what is the present position with regard to the appointment of a stipendiary magistrate for the City of Manchester; and whether he will make a statement.
§ The Solicitor-General
A petition for the appointment of a stipendiary magistrate for the City of Manchester has been received by my right hon. and learned Friend the Home Secretary. My noble friend the Lord Chancellor informs me that he expects to recommend to Her Majesty the name of a suitable person for this appointment within the next few days.
