For many years past our Chambers of Commerce and Mercantile Associations have been calling for the establishment in the County Courts of Ireland of a summary power to obtain decrees by default for liquidated demands. In support of this claim the analogy of the power to obtain judgment by default in the High Court, and the provisions of the English County Courts Acts, enabling such decrees to be obtained outside Sessions, are relied on. It is urged that the want of such a power delays and sometimes defeats just and undisputed debts, and imposes upon creditors, and particularly upon trade creditors, the hardship and inconvenience of attending Quarter Sessions and proving demands to which no defence could or was intended to be offered.
