HC Deb 15 February 1876 vol 227 c302

asked Mr. Attorney General, If it is in contemplation to abolish the holding of assizes in the county of Surrey; and, if so, whether he will state to the House the reasons for this determination?


, in reply, said, that an Order in Council stated that it was not contemplated by the Judicature Act that Surrey was to be included in any circuit; but commissions were to be issued into it not loss than twice a year for the discharge of civil and criminal business therein, and therefore the Assizes for that county would not be abolished.
