A Parliamentary Agent's Claim

In the Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice yesterday, Mr. Justice Chitty heard a summons under which Mr. Hanley, Parliamentary agent, asked to be entitled to claim as a creditor against the Skegness and St Leonard’s Tramway Company for expenses incurred in promoting a second bill, called the Skegness and St Leonard’s Act, 1885, which was a bill to enable the company to abandon a portion of the line sanctioned by the first Act, and to extend the time during which the work was to be done.
The defence was that Mr. Hanley was not authorised by the company to perform the services in respect of which he now asked to be allowed to claim against the company.
Mr. Justice Chitty took this view, and dismissed the summons, with costs.
