HC Deb 09 February 1875 vol 222 c159

asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether a site has been provided in the buildings in course of erection for Consolidation of the Law Courts for the Supreme Court of Appeal; and, if not, whether any and what arrangement has been made for its accommodation?


Mr. Street's plans for the new Courts of Justice having been approved before there was any idea of making a change in the Judicature, no special apartment for the Supreme Court of Appeal has, by that name, been included in the new buildings; but, by the courtesy of the Society of Lincoln's Inn, their old dininghall has been made over to the Government. It has been suitably fitted by the Office of Works, and restored to its previous dimensions, and is now, I am informed, admirably adapted to be the First Court of Appeal.
