HC Deb 13 July 1914 vol 64 cc1490-1

asked the Prime Minister whether it is proposed to give effect this year to the recommendations of the Royal Commission on legal delay in the High Courts; that arrangements should be made for the trial, during the Long Vacation, of Order XIV. cases, of cases in the speedy trial list, and of such others as the judge may hold to be really pressing; and that the Long Vacation should be reduced to two months, lasting from 1st August to the 1st October?


I understand that the Judges of the King's Bench Division have made the arrangements suggested for business during the Long Vacation, but that the question of its reduction is regarded as part of the recommendations depending on the number of judges, to be fixed by Parliament.
