HC Deb 15 November 1985 vol 86 c319W
Mr. Lawrence

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce a change in the law to enable the Crown court to have powers to try a defendant for a summary offence where that defendant is charged with both summary and indictable offences.

Mr. Mellor

Some proposals which are relevant to this matter will be discussed in a consultative document which we propose to issue shortly concerning the distribution of court business.
