HC Deb 12 March 1868 vol 190 cc1449-50

said, he wished to ask Mr. Attorney General, Whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to propose to abolish the privilege accorded to aliens indicted or impeached, of being tried by a jury de medietate linguæ?


replied, that it was not the intention of Her Ma- jesty's Government at present to deal with this question, or to abolish the privilege referred to. He might state, however, that the subject was within the scope of the Judicature Commission now sitting, and it would probably be included in their Report.
