HC Deb 06 December 1973 vol 865 cc439-40W
35. Mr. Stanbrook

asked the Attorney-General whether he will seek to provide separate waiting facilities for jurors attending trials at the Central Criminal Court, in view of the undesirability of the present practice whereby serving jurors, defendants on bail and defence witnesses may now mingle freely outside each court.

The Solicitor-General

The design of the Central Criminal Court building does not readily lend itself to the provision of separate waiting facilities for jurors, but in the few cases where this is particularly desirable special arrangements are made.
