HC Deb 25 July 1940 vol 363 c998W
Sir T. Moore

asked the Attorney-General whether he will ensure that there shall be a drastic modification, if not complete elimination, of the Long Vacation, so that the law sittings shall continue without any long break, having regard to the present general policy of cutting down holidays of every kind?

The Attorney-General

As was reported in the "Times" of 16th July, the Council of Judges unanimously recommended that the Long Vacation this year should be cancelled by Order in Council, and on 17th July an Order in Council was passed giving effect to that recommendation.
