§ 65. Wing Commander Bullus
asked the Attorney-General how many judges of the Queen's Bench Division are remaining in London this term to try civil actions; and whether he is satisfied that these arrangements are adequate.
The number of judges in London fluctuates according to the demands of the circuits, but on an average 10 judges of the Queen's Bench Division will be available for the trial of civil actions this term. On many occasions this term assistance has been given by one or more Chancery judges, and arrangements have been made for a judge of the Chancery Division to sit in the Queen's Bench Division throughout next term. My noble friend the Lord Chancellor is considering what further steps can be taken to reduce delays in the hearing of civil actions.
