HC Deb 05 June 1871 vol 206 c1540

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, What arrangements have been made by the Lord President of the Council to enable the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council to dispose of eighty-six Appeals to Her Majesty in Council now set down for hearing before the long vacation?


, in reply, said, that arrangements had been made that after the end of the term, the 30th of June, the two Lords Justices will attend for 12 days to hear appeals. That was a temporary arrangement; but the permanent arrangements for the improvement of the Appeal Court were embodied in the Bill of which his hon. and learned Friend the Attorney General had charge.
