HC Deb 11 May 1971 vol 817 c79W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Attorney-General (1) whether he will arrange that artisans who are called for jury service are granted, in addition to their loss of earnings, a clothing allowance to enable them to be properly dressed when attending court;

(2) whether he will arrange to have printed on the literature sent to persons summoned for jury service the type of dress they should or should not wear when attending court.

(3) whether he will in future arrange for all jurors, on receiving summonses for jury service, to be advised that they must wear their best clothes; and whether he can claim an allowance for this.

Mr. Carlisle

I have been asked to reply.

My right hon. Friend does not think that this is a matter on which any advice is called for on his part, or on which any special provision by way of financial allowances would be appropriate.
