HC Deb 09 March 1927 vol 203 c1231
52. Mr. W. BAKER

asked the Attorney-General whether he is aware that on the 21st February there were 759 special jury cases, 547 common jury cases and 643 non-jury cases in the list for the King's Bench Division; and what steps are being taken to expedite the hearing of these cases?

The ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir Douglas Hogg)

No, Sir. The number of special jury cases standing for trial on 21st February, 1927, was S5 and not 759, as stated in the question. The number of common juries was 190 and not 547, and the number of non-juries 354 and not 643.


Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman will allow me to apologise for having been misinformed.
