asked the Home Secretary the number of magistrates eligible to sit at the Petty Sessional Court at Caerphilly, Glamorganshire, who are resident within that area; whether he is aware that grave inconvenience is experienced by the inhabitants of that area by reason of the fact that the number of resident magistrates is at present inadequate; and whether he will make representations to the proper quarters in favour of the creation of an additonal number of magistrates who will be resident in the neighbourhood?

I understand that 13 magistrates eligible to sit at Caerphilly live in the Petty Sessional Division, and that the. Advisory Committee for Glamorganehire, whose duty it would be to call the Lord Chancellor's attention to inconvenience, has not made any proposal for further appointments. But in reply to my inquiry the Clerk to the Court has made certain suggestions which I will pass on to the Lord Chancellor for his consideration.
