HC Deb 22 February 1980 vol 979 cc394-6W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Attorney-General why the list of Crown Court sittings for 1980 shows that only on one occasion will a High Court judge visit Caernarfon; if he will give an assurance that in future years there will be more visits to Caernarfon; and if he will guarantee that there is no intention of depriving Caernarfon of its first tier status as a Crown Court.

The Attorney-General

It is not intended to change status of the Crown Court at Caernarfon. During 1980, as in previous years, it is planned that a High Court judge should sit at Caernarfon on three occasions, providing that there are sufficient cases there requiring his attention. Visits have already been arranged for one week each in March and June. Further visits will depend on the volume of work.
