HC Deb 25 March 1929 vol 226 cc2085-6W

asked the Home Secretary the number of persons serving on common juries during the year 1928 at the assizes in England and Wales in criminal and civil cases, respectively; at the High Court of Justice, London, other than in assize cases; at the county courts throughout England and Wales; and at coroners' courts throughout England and Wales?


No figures are yet available for 1928, and the figures for 1927 do not give the information in the precise form required. All I can say is that in that year 31,174 jurors were summoned to assizes, 5,303 to the High Court, round about 14,000 to county courts, and between 7,000 and 11,000 to coroners' inquests.
