§ 51. Mr. C. Poole
asked the Attorney-General for how many hours a day it is laid down that pensions appeal tribunals should sit.
There are no hours of sitting laid down in the Rules for the pensions appeal tribunals. Generally speaking the tribunals sit at 10 a.m., and seven cases a day are normally listed for hearing by each tribunal—five in the morning and two in the afternoon. The tribunal usually sits until all the cases are heard. This, however, is not always possible; although a tribunal often sits till 5.30, it is not expected to start a fresh case after four o'clock.
