HC Deb 25 March 1927 vol 204 cc747-8W

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the fact that persons charged with serious crimes have frequently to be remanded week by week for a considerable period without bail or any definite date fixed for the trial because the police are not ready to proceed, he will give definite instruction or guidance to the police upon the matter so as to obviate such delays?


I know of no reason for thinking that there is any avoidable delay in these cases, or that any instructions to the police in this matter are required.
