§ 57. Sir FRANCIS BLAKE
asked the Prime Minister whether it is the intention of the Government to allow The Grand Juries (Suspension) Act, 1917, to expire as therein provided, or whether it is proposed to take evidence as to the desirability of permanently discontinuing this institution?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The Grand Juries Suspension Act, 1917, remains in operation until the expiration of six months after the termination of the War. The question 1082 whether, and, if so, to what extent the provisions of the Act should be made permanent is receiving careful consideration in the light of the experience gained during the period for which it has been in operation.
