§ Mr. GRIFFITHS
asked the Attorney-General whether he will advise the appointment of a Royal Commission to inquire into the codification and amendment of the criminal law of England and Wales and to prepare a draft code?
§ The ATTORNEY-GENERAL
No, Sir. Certain branches of the Criminal Law Have been codified in recent years, and it may be possible by proceeding gradually to make further progress in that direction. I have consulted my Noble Friend the Lord Chancellor upon the suggestion contained in this question, and I concur in his view that the appointment of a Royal Commission would not be likely to produce any useful result.
