§ MR. STUART SAMUEL (Tower Hamlets, Whitechapel)
To ask Mr. Attorney-General whether the action upon the subject of the acquisition by the Corporation of London of the lessee's interest in Spitalfields Market, has yet been set down for trial; if not, when he anticipates that it will be so set down; and in the event of its being already entered for trial, when he anticipates that the trial will take place.
(Answered by Sir William Robson.) This action cannot be set down for trial until certain interlocutory matters have been disposed of. I am informed by the City Solicitor, who has the conduct of the case, that no time has been lost in proceeding with the matter during the vacation. The case is to come before the Master for directions on the 26th inst., and the City Solicitor hopes that the remaining interlocutory matters will not cause any considerable delay.
