Frederick Debartzch Monk

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MONK.

But I am afraid I will have to continue teaching that there is a power in this land which controls even the judges, and that is the parliament of this country ; and until my right hon. friend can demonstrate to me a little more clearly than he has done that that is not the case, I shall continue to believe that under the old Settlement Act of 1701, passed under the reign of Queen Anne, and under our own Confederation Act, and a special clause therein, which I will show to my right hon. friend if he has never seen it-our judges are responsible to parliament and can be removed under an address of both Houses.
