§ The Attorney-General (Sir Hartley Shawcross)
I would refer my hon. Friends to the reply given to the hon. Members for Maldon (Mr. Driberg) and Mile End (Mr. Piratin) on 19th December last. As then stated, the subject of special juries is under consideration; no final decision has yet been reached, and my hon. Friend's suggestion will receive consideration.
