HC Deb 26 March 1970 vol 798 c523W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Attorney-General how many courts are now available for use in the Royal Courts of Justice in the Strand; and how many of those courts were empty and unused during the month of February, 1970.

The Attorney-General

48 courts are available. Six of them are sub-standard, of which two should be used only in an emergency. During the month of February, 1970, there were 71 occasions when, for various reasons (including other calls on judicial time or illness) the satisfactory courts were not used.
