HC Deb 07 July 1885 vol 298 c1832

asked Mr. Attorney General, Whether, considering the fact that the suitors of the Chancery Division cannot select the Court in which to try their causes, and that there is a great variation in the rate of speed with which causes are tried in different Courts, there is any likelihood of such a change of practice being established by authority, either by way of a rota of judges, or otherwise, as will give to each suitor an equal chance of having his case heard within a given time?


said, the hon. Member was no doubt aware that a Committee, presided over by the Master of the Rolls, had been investigating the question; and as their Report would shortly be laid before the Lord Chancellor, it would be unwise to express an opinion on the point until that Report was presented.
