Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. DOHERTY:

As the position now
stands the Circuit Court judges of that particular court are neither in the same position as the County Court judges nor in the same position as the Superior Court judges with regard to their removability. The proposition of this Bill is to assimilate their position in that regard to the position of the county court judges throughout the country, and to place the Government in a position where, should the question arise, the Government will he able to deal with the judge of this particular court in the same way in which it is now in a position to deal with the County Court judges generally.
Resolution reported and agreed to.
Mr. DOHERTY thereupon moved to introduced Bill No. 66 to amend the Judges' Act.
Motion agreed to and Bill read the first time.

Topic:   QUESTIONS.
