§ The Attorney-General
Forty-eight courts of county quarter sessions have up to 9th June acquired the extended jurisdiction provided under the Administration of Justice (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 1938, by reason of the presence of a legally qualified chairman and/or deputy-chairman. To 27 of these courts chairmen and/or deputy-chairmen have been appointed under Section I (1) of the Act. In the remainder the chairman and/or deputy-chairman is already a legally qualified person under the Act without appointment. In 14 courts of quarter sessions there is, at present, no legally qualified chairman and/or deputy-chairman under the Act. In some of these cases it is understood that the appointment is under consideration locally.
