§ Mr. BRUNNER
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the inconvenience caused to busy men by the present method of summoning jurors; whether he will direct the summoning officers to inquire when it is convenient to the jurors to attend; and whether he will direct the summoning officers to give longer than six days' notice requiring their attendance?2283W
§ Mr. McKENNA
I have no authority to give any directions as to the summoning of jurors. The Departmental Committee which is inquiring into the working of the jury system will no doubt consider how far the inconveniences attendant on jury service can be remedied.
