HC Deb 13 March 1924 vol 170 cc2528-9
28. Mr. S. ROBERTS

asked the Home Secretary whether, when he gave instructions for the Circular dated the 9th February to the Clerks to the Justices, he was aware of the practice of Justices sitting by rota; whether he is aware that such a practice is most satisfactory, as giving individual Justices more interest in their work; and whether his letter was intended to condemn such practice?


The Circular referred to dealt with the question of the appointment of a Chairman in Petty Sessional areas only and was not intended to discourage any suitable arrangement, with which it was in no way incompatible, for the attendance of Justices by rota.
