§ Dr. David Owen
asked the Attorney-General what steps he is taking to reduce the waiting list for cases to be heard in the Chancery Division of the High Court.
§ The Attorney-General
An additional judge was appointed to the Chancery Division in October 1972. Since then there has been a significant reduction in the number of outstanding cases in the 169W Witness List. My noble Friend the Lord Chancellor is considering whether any further action is necessary.
