HC Deb 07 December 1922 vol 159 c2012W

asked the Home Secretary whether he can fix any date, even approximate, by which the recommendations of the Rigby Swift Committee affecting County Court officers will be carried into effect; and whether the delay in attaining this result is due to any specific cause or causes?

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Attorney-General whether His Majesty's Government have any intention of putting into force the recommendations contained in the Report of Judge Rigby Swift's Committee on County Court Staffs, Cmd. 1049/1920; whether he is aware of the very poor pay and prospects of those staffs and the urgent need of an improvement in their position, as recommended in the Report: and what action is proposed?


I have been asked to reply. I have nothing to add to the answer I gave to a similar question addressed to me by the hon. Member for Moss Side (Mr. G. Hurst) on the 4th of this month.
