HC Deb 30 July 1918 vol 109 c261W

asked the Lord Advocate whether he is aware that special constables are being cited in Glasgow as jurors to attend the sittings of the High Court of Justiciary and the various sheriff and jury courts; whether such special constables are officers of the Law within the meaning of the Jurors (Scotland) Act, 1825, and, as such, entitled to exemption from acting as jurors whilst they are discharging duty as special constables; and if he will give instructions to those responsible for citing jurors to those courts that special constables be not called upon to serve as jurors?


My attention has not previously been called to the matter referred to by my hon. and learned Friend. I am making inquiry.
