HC Deb 17 April 1975 vol 890 c147W
Mr. Ryman

asked the Attorney-General whether the Lord Chancellor will consider proposing increasing the jurisdiction of county courts in relation to actions for contract and tort.

The Attorney-General

County court jurisdiction in contract and tort was increased from £750 to £1,000 with effect from 1st October 1974. My noble Friend is not proposing to make any further increases in the immediate future, but will keep the position under review.
