HC Deb 28 February 1980 vol 979 c693W
Mr. Carmichael

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the capacity of the space available for witnesses at Glasgow sheriff court and the average number of witnesses called on the busiest days.

Mr. Rifkind

The witness waiting areas at county buildings and Lanarkshire house provide somewhat cramped accommodation for approximately 600 persons. On a very busy day the number of witnesses in attendance can range up to 650.
