§ Mr. Lawrence
asked the Attorney-General what work is being carried out on the Middlesex Guildhall building in Parliament square; whether it is intended to reopen it as a Crown court; and if he will make a statement.
§ The Attorney-General
The interior of the Middlesex Guildhall is being adapted in order to increase the number of courtrooms from six to seven and to improve the facilities available to the courts' users. The work is expected to be completed by the end of 1987 and it will reopen as a Crown court thereafter.
