HC Deb 27 June 1921 vol 143 cc1825-6W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is aware that the Justiciary Building Court Halls in Jail Square, Glasgow, are very inadequately ventilated and that the atmosphere therein long before mid-day, when trials are being conducted, becomes hopelessly vitiated and makes it very uncomfortable for judges, juries, counsel, and others and difficult to conduct business; and whether, seeing that this state of affairs could easily be remedied by causing the windows to be made capable of being opened at least at the top portion thereof, he will instruct this alteration to be made forthwith?


My right hon. Friend is having inquiry made into the matter referred to and will communicate with my hon. and learned Friend in due course.
