MR. LLOYD MORGAN (Carmarthen, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, having regard to the expense, inconvenience, and loss of time incurred by those who have to attend and serve as petty jurors, he will consider the question of introducing a Bill to provide for their remuneration?
§ MR. ASQUITH
I am not prepared to introduce legislation on this subject. There is a Bill providing for the remuneration of common jurors in civil cases at the expense of the parties now before the House. As at present advised, I do not think that in criminal cases the existing practice should be changed.
