§ 26. Mr. HUTCHISON
asked the Attorney-General for what reasons the Romford County Court is being closed down in September and being transferred to Ilford, as Ilford is a subsidiary court to Romford?
§ The ATTORNEY- GENERAL
The present court buildings at Romford and at Ilford are inconvenient both for the court sittings and for the offices of the staff. Concentration in a new central building will result in improved efficiency and in economy.
§ Mr. HUTCHISON
Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware of the rapid growth of the Romford district; and if new accommodation is being erected, will it be possible to place the new county court in Romford owing to the increase in fares and the distance in which litigants will be involved if it is placed in Ilford?
§ The ATTORNEY-GENERAL
If those questions are not taken into consideration, I will take care that they are.
