HC Deb 27 March 1882 vol 268 c15

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, having regard to the importance of the new Rules of Procedure which are under the consideration of a Committee of Judges, and the alteration which they will effect in the administration of the Law, provision can be made for suspending the operation of them until there has been an opportunity for the consideration of them by this House?


in reply, said, that he was in communication with the Lord Chancellor on the subject, and he understood from him that no new Rules had yet been made, although the Judges had held meetings and passed resolutions upon which Rules would be framed. The only provision to meet the case referred to in the latter part of the Question was contained in the 25th section of the Judicature Act.
