§ Mr. BAKER
asked the Attorney-General whether, in view of the extension of the franchise, he will advise the Government to base the qualification for jury service, with a few exceptions, upon the right to vote; and whether, whenever a reform of this character is under consideration, he will consider the desirability of instituting an age limit so that men of great age may not be called as grand jurors?954W
I have been asked to reply. I do not see my way to introduce a Bill to amend the law relating to qualifications for jury service, but when any such Bill is in contemplation the suggestions of the hon. Member will be carefully considered.
