HC Deb 01 March 1909 vol 1 cc1249-50W

asked the number of distinct cases tried at the late Cork and Limerick Winter Assizes in which jurors were ordered by the Crown to stand aside without cause assigned, the number of jurors so challenged, and the result of the trial in each case?


It would not be possible to reply to this question without obtaining reports from the Crown Solicitors of every county included in the Munster and Connaught Winter Assizes, and this would take some time. I cannot interrupt the Crown Solicitors in their work of preparing for the Spring Assizes, which have already begun, for the purpose of obtaining the information. If, however, the hon. Member is interested on behalf of any particular persons who were tried at the Winter Assizes I shall be happy on being furnished with the names to obtain the information he desires, as I did for the hon. Member for Sligo in December last.
