Mr. Jessel

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what consideration Her Majesty's s Government are giving to changes in court procedure in Crown Courts.

Mr. Hurd

The Lord Chancellor and I are considering the proposals made by Lord Roskill's committee on fraud trials concerning aspects of Crown court procedure. My noble and learned Friend and I keep Crown court procedure generally under review and some of the possible changes will be discussed in a White Paper I intend to issue on proposals for criminal justice legislation.
