§ 90. Mr. PETO
asked the Attorney-General whether any change in the circuit system advocated by the Royal Commission now sitting will affect only civil and not criminal business; if so, whether it is proposed to concentrate civil business in only a few centres; and whether he proposes to consult the House before any final decision is arrived at?
§ The ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir Rufus Isaacs)
The Royal Commission has not yet advocated any change in the circuit system. I understand the matter is still under the consideration of the Commissioners, who have not yet arrived at any definite conclusions with regard to it. I cannot answer the last question until I know the recommendation of the Commission.
