HC Deb 28 July 1965 vol 717 cc126-7W
36 and 37. Mr. Brewis

asked the Attorney-General (1) what study he is making of the need to re-locate the Patents Appeal Tribunal concurrently with the study to re-locate the Patent Office outside London; and what conclusions he has reached;

(2) to what extent Her Majesty's Government's plans for the re-location of the Patent Office will involve taking steps to appoint an additional judge to hear patent cases in the Chancery Division.

The Attorney-General

It is unlikely that the location of the Patents Appeal Tribunal will have to be moved from the Law Courts. My noble friend the Lord Chancellor sees no need for an additional judge to hear patent cases.
