HC Deb 12 May 1890 vol 344 cc686-7
*MR. LENG (Dundee)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate whether, in view of the unusually large number of cases in both the First and Second Divisions of the Court of Session waiting hearing in the summer Session, and of the large accumulation of business in the Outer House, so that new cases brought in be- tween May and July have no prospect of being heard till the winter sittings, any arrangements are in contemplation for obviating, in future, the inconvenience to suitors caused by such delays?


I understand that a representation on the matter referred to has been made to the President of the Court of Session, who informed the Memorialists that the subject would receive consideration when the Court met after the spring vacation. I may add that the sittings commence tomorrow.
