§ Mr. BETTERTON
asked the Postmaster-General whether lie is aware of the continued delay and consequent hardship in settling the claims arising out of the judgment in the case of Sutton v. Rex; and whether he can now give an assurance that the matter will be speedily concluded?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
I must refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave to the right hon. Member for Colchester (Sir L. Worthington-Evans) on the 15th May last. The Petitions of Right in the various test cases and the Crown's answers have now been lodged and the eases entered for trial, and I hope they will come before the Courts very shortly.
