HC Deb 04 December 1922 vol 159 cc1249-50W

asked the Attorney-General whether his attention has been drawn to the statements made by the Lords Justices of Appeal, in the Court of Appeal on the 6th July last, that the effect of Section 2 (1) of the Administration of Justice Act, 1920, is that the subject is deprived, in certain cases, of his right to have Common Law actions tried by a jury; and whether, having regard to the hope expressed by the Lords Justices that the right may be restored, he will take steps accordingly?


The matter to which the hon. Member refers is under the consideration of the Lord Chancellor in consultation with the Rule Committee of the Supreme Court.
