HC Deb 18 July 1973 vol 860 c125W
32. Mr. Ronald King Murray

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made in discussing the White Paper on justices of the peace and justices' courts (Command Paper No. 5241) with local authorities and other interested parties; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

My right hon. Friend is examining very carefully the comments that he has received on the White Paper, some of which were sent to him very recently. He is not yet in a position to make a statement.
