HC Deb 07 June 1888 vol 326 c1362
SIR JOHN KENNAWAY (Devon, Honiton)

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, in view of the additional obligations to be placed on members joining the Volunteer Service, he will endeavour to bring about their exemption from liability to serve upon juries?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

The question of exempting Volunteers from liability to serve on juries is well worthy of consideration; but this House has always been somewhat jealous of any exemption from jury service. It shall, however, be carefully considered in the event of any general legislation on the subject.
