HC Deb 24 February 1938 vol 332 cc531-2
39. Mr. Muff

asked the Home Secretary what steps are being taken to increase the accommodation of the City of Bradford justices' court, in view of the fact that the juvenile court is held in an ordinary court room and that a second court is held in the justices' retiring room, and, in particular, whether accommodation will be provided for a counsels' robing room when quarter sessions are held, a consulting room for counsel and clients, a suitable room for waiting jurors, and for a retiring room to be always available for a jury to retire to consider their verdict; and whether there is any lavatory accommodation for either juries or public?

Mr. Lloyd

My right hon. Friend has been in communication with the Town Clerk of Bradford and is informed that the question of increasing the accommodation at this court has been receiving the serious consideration of the special finance sub-committee of the corporation for a considerable time and that the subcommittee hope to submit at an early date for the approval of the city council a scheme for the provision of additional accommodation.
