HC Deb 10 June 1964 vol 696 c72W
Mr. Gourlay

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will provide a short manual of court procedure and guidance to magistrates appointed to preside at burgh police courts; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Noble

A manual of the kind envisaged by the hon. Member is published by the Scottish Council of Social Service, entitledWhat the Scots magistrate ought to know. A revised edition of this manual, bringing it up to date in the light of recent changes in the law, is at present in preparation.
