HC Deb 20 April 1888 vol 325 cc12-3
MR. ADDISON (Ashton-under-Lynn)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether his attention has been called to the inconvenience occasioned to suitors and. others having business at the Assizes and at the Courts of Quarter Sessions by the uncertainty as to the time when Assizes are held, and by the insufficient notice given beforehand. as to their dates; and, whether he is prepared to bring in a Bill to appoint a fixed time for commencing the Assizes throughout the country, without regard to the movable feasts of Easter and Whitsuntide?


in reply, said, he had received a communication from the Lord Chancellor that he was not aware of any inconvenience. The Government was not prepared to bring in a Bill appointing fixed times for Assizes.
