HC Deb 02 August 1944 vol 402 cc1404-5W
Mr. Stokes

asked the Attorney-General whether he will give such instructions as may be necessary to ensure that murder trials are conducted by judges versed in criminal law.

The Attorney-General

Murder trials are conducted by Judges of the King's Bench Division who are versed in the criminal law. I have no power to give any directions to His Majesty's Judges, but I can assure my hon. Friend that his object is already secured.
