HC Deb 27 June 1910 vol 18 c667

asked the Home Secretary whether it is proposed to alter the assize circuit system; and to remove the North Wales Assizes from Ruthin to some town in England?

The SOLICITOR-GENERAL (Sir Rufus Isaacs)

By the request of the Secretary of State for the Home Department I will answer this question. The Government are considering various plans suggested for the rearrangement of the circuit system, but no decision has yet been arrived at. Opportunity will be given for discussion in the House of any proposed alteration of assizes.

Sir J. D. REES

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that there is a very strong feeling on this subject in other towns in North Wales beside Ruthin?


I am aware there is some objection, and it is for that reason I made the answer that there will be full opportunity for discussion.
