HC Deb 24 November 1937 vol 329 c1250W
Mr. Leach

asked the Home Secretary whether he is prepared to introduce legislation to forbid motoring magistrates or judges from trying cases of serious motoring offences?

Sir S. Hoare

I am unable to accept the suggestion that a magistrate who has practical experience of driving a motor vehicle should be debarred from adjudicating in cases of the kind referred to.
