HC Deb 09 December 1981 vol 14 c862
42. Mr. Pollock

asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland how many sittings of the High Court have taken place in Glasgow to date in 1981.

The Solicitor-General for Scotland

There have been 12 sittings of the High Court in Glasgow in 1981, including the current sitting, which began on 30 November.

Mr. Pollock

Is my hon. and learned Friend satisfied that he has the balance right between the amount of time that he spends performing his duties in the House and the amount of time that he spends appearing in the High Court in Glasgow?

The Solicitor-General for Scotland

I undertake the duties of prosecuting in Glasgow High Court and other places according to what I judge to be in the public interest in demonstrating the serious view of violent crime taken by hon. Members on both sides of the House.
