HC Deb 28 January 1960 vol 616 cc52-3W
54. Mr. Gordon Walker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he proposes to take with regard to the Home Office Research Unit Report, entitled" Time Spent Awaiting Trial"; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The Report is based on research undertaken for the Interdepartmental Committee on the Business of Criminal Courts, of which Mr. Justice Streatfeild is Chairman. I have no doubt that, in framing their recommendations, the Committee will take full account of the information contained in the Report.
