HC Deb 18 July 1967 vol 750 c240W
Mr. Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce legislation to alter the procedure for granting bail where neither violence nor absconding is likely to arise.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

The Criminal Justice Bill contains provisions restricting the power of magistrates' courts to remand in custody. I should prefer to see how these provisions operate in practice before considering any further amendment of the law relating to bail.
