HC Deb 24 October 1972 vol 843 c289W
Mr. Bishop

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has completed consideration of proposals for the ending of the exclusion of women from jury service because of the property qualification, the homes of many married women being in the name of their husband; and if he will expedite action to make both sexes liable for service on the basis of the electoral register.

Mr. Carlisle

I would refer the hon. Member to the relevant provisions now contained in the Criminal Justice Bill.
