HC Deb 13 November 1958 vol 595 c72W
86. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he now proposes to implement the Report of the Tucker Committee on Proceedings before Examining Magistrates.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I am studying the Committee's Report carefully, and I should like to express my thanks to Lord Tucker and his colleagues for their careful survey of this difficult problem. The Government have not yet reached a decision on the recommendations, but I do not think that, if it were decided to implement them, it would be possible on present prospects to find time for legislation this Session.
