HC Deb 12 January 1894 vol 20 c1471

I wish to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland if his attention has been called to the fact that in a case tried at the Cork Assizes yesterday, out of 43 jurors the Crown ordered 25 to stand aside? How soon does the right hon. Gentleman expect the amended Rules to come into force?


I have received no information as to what took place at Cork Assizes, and cannot, therefore, offer any explanation. The amended Rules will be ready in the course of two or three days, and will be presented to the House when it re-assembles.
