§ Mr. G. HURST
asked the Attorney-General whether any steps have been taken to give effect to the recommendations made by Mr. Justice Swift's Committee on the 23rd October, 1920, as to the conditions of the employment of staffs in County Courts; and to what extent such recommendations will be carried out?
§ Sir D. HOGG
The recommendations made by Mr. Justice Swift's Committee as to the conditions of employment of staffs in County Courts form part of a larger scheme. That scheme cannot be put into operation without statutory authority. The matter has been, and still is, under consideration, with a view to working out the details of the scheme and preparing the necessary Bills, and I hope that substantial progress will be made in this matter in the immediate future.
