HC Deb 26 June 1969 vol 785 c297W
39. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will seek powers to establish an intelligence test for citizens who are liable for jury service.

Mr. Elystan Morgan

No. The Departmental Committee on Jury Service considered this proposal carefully and I find no reason to reject its conclusion that any form of intelligence test would be inappropriate and unacceptable in the British system of jury service.
