HC Deb 01 February 1971 vol 810 cc228-9W
Mr. John Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Wales for what purposes Monmouthshire is not treated as part of Wales.

Mr. Peter Thomas

Monmouthshire is joined to Wales for practically all administrative purposes. For the purpose of arranging Assize itineraries and ancillary matters, it is treated as part of the Oxford Circuit, but under the proposed reorganisation of the higher courts, Monmouthshire will become part of the Wales and Chester Circuit.
