HC Deb 19 June 1935 vol 303 cc372-4W

asked the Attorney-General whether his attention has been called to the following resolution which was passed, on 25th January, 1935, at a special general meeting of the Law Society: that the council be urged to consider the serious prejudice to litigants and solicitors in cases where counsel, duly briefed for trial of action, is prevented from fulfilling his engagement owing to his appearance in another court, and to make such representations as will lead to the appropriate remedy; and whether he has taken, or contemplates taking, any action in relation thereto?


The resolution referred to has been brought to the notice of, and is now under consideration by, the Bar Council.
