HC Deb 28 June 1883 vol 280 cc1703-4

asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, Whether the Government intend to hold any sit- tings of the Special Commission under the Prevention of Crime Act in any place other than Dublin, with the view of relieving the jurors of the city and county of Dublin, who have so manfully discharged their duties, of the serious loss and inconvenience which repeated summonses to serve on special juries under the Act are imposing upon them?


, in reply, said, that no Special Commission had yet been held under the Prevention of Crime Act, either in Dublin or elsewhere; and it was not intended at present, unless unforeseen circumstances should arise, to hold any such Court. Recognizing the great services rendered by the Dublin jurors, it was not intended to cast any duties upon them at the next Commission except those peculiarly their own; and, accordingly, it was not his intention to have any but Dublin cases tried at the next Commission.
