HC Deb 10 March 1910 vol 14 c1640

asked the Lord Advocate whether the High Court of Justiciary is always granted to the magistrates of Edinburgh for their April licensing court; if so, will he say why this court is so granted; is it through want of accommodation elsewhere; and will he grant a similar privilege to the magistrates of Glasgow should they desire it, who are frequently forced to hire a hall for then April licensing court?


The reply to the first part of my hon. Friend's question is in the affirmative, the reason being want of sufficient accommodation as suggested by him. I understand that the Justiciary Building in Glasgow is not vested in the Crown, which is, therefore, not in a position to grant or refuse its use.
