HC Deb 03 May 1966 vol 727 cc93-4W
Mr. Clegg

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will take steps, by legislation or otherwise, to improve the facilities for witnesses attending courts to give evidence; and when he will do this.

Mr. Taverne

Responsibility for most court buildings rests with local authorities. Proper facilities for witnesses were among the matters dealt with in a pamphlet on the planning of court buildings sent to them last year by the Home Office.
