HC Deb 18 February 1963 vol 672 cc3-4W
35. Mr. Channon

asked the Attorney-General what steps he takes to ensure that an up-to-date list of magistrates is readily available to hon. Members.

The Solicitor-General

A complete record of the names of justices of the peace in England and Wales, other thanex officio justices, is maintained in the Lord Chancellor's Department and information about them will be readily supplied to hon. Members at any time. It is not practicable to supply up-to-date lists of justices to inquirers because the number of justices is so great and changes are made in the Commissions of the Peace almost every day.
