February 19, 1902 (9th Parliament, 2nd Session)


William Humphrey Bennett

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT asked :

Is the Prime Minister correctly reported in the Hansard of April 24th, 1899, as having stated that ' the question of introducing legislation to provide for the compulsory retirement of county court judges in the province of Ontario who had attained the age of seventy-five years was under the consideration of the government.'
If correctly reported, is legislation to such end to be introduced this session ?
If such legislation is introduced, will similar legislation be introduced in reference to the Judges of the Supreme Court of Canada and Judges of the High Court of Justice in the province of Ontario ?
