HC Deb 25 November 1966 vol 736 c375W
Mr. Whitaker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, before introducing any legislation to alter the requirement that a jury must be unanimous in its verdict, he will commission research into the working of the jury system and take steps to implement the Morris Report.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

No, but I am proposing in the Criminal Justice Bill to implement the recommendations of the Morris Committee as regards excluding criminals from juries.
