HC Deb 26 March 1889 vol 334 cc845-6
MR. ALFRED THOMAS (Glamorgan, E.)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the Government intend to bring in any Bill to extend the jurisdiction of County Courts, or otherwise to provide better facilities for the decision of disputes in the great provincial centres of population and trade?


I am informed by the Lord Chancellor that, having regard to the recent extension of the County Courts jurisdiction and other judicial arrangements in progress, he has not included any proposals on the subject referred to by the hon. Member in the legislation which he desires to promote.
