HC Deb 13 April 1948 vol 449 c64W
71 and 72. Mr. Platts-Mills

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) whether he will take steps to increase the payments made to jurors;

(2) in view of the widespread opinion that they no longer serve a useful purpose, whether he will take steps to abolish special juries.

Mr. Younger

These matters are receiving the earnest attention of my right hon. Friend, who hopes to make a statement shortly.
