HC Deb 12 July 1928 vol 219 cc2462-3

asked the Home Secretary the number of persons serving on common juries during the year 1927 at the Assizes in England and Wales in criminal and civil cases, respectively; at the High Court of Justice, London, in cases other than Assize cases; and in County Courts and Coroners' Courts, respectively, in England and Wales?


I am afraid that figures in the form desired are not available. I can only say that in 1926, 31,631 jurors were summoned in Assize Courts, 6,546 common jurors in the High Court and round about 12,000 jurors in County Courts. As regards Coroners' Courts, the law was altered during 1927, and figures for that year are not available.
