HC Deb 09 May 1904 vol 134 cc739-40
DR. SHIPMAN (Northampton)

To ask Mr. Attorney-General whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce a Bill for the extension of the jurisdiction of the County Courts consequent upon the Act of 3 Edw. 7, c. 42, the commencement of that Act having been deferred to the 1st January, 1905, to enable some measure to be introduced, or will the Government rely solely upon rules.

(Answered by Sir Robert Finlay.) It has always been the opinion of His Majesty's Government that the Act 3 Edw. 7, c. 42, required to be supple- mented, and the terms of a Bill for that purpose are under consideration.
