§ Mr. Edward Lyons
asked the Attorney-General what steps he is taking to make a computer available to the Law Commissioners and Parliamentary draftsmen for the purpose of speedy preparation of consolidation statutes.
§ The Attorney-General
The Law Commissioners have already given some preliminary consideration to the long-term possibilities of using computers for different kinds of legal work and they are keeping in touch with research and development at home and abroad. There is, however, no reason to suppose that the provision of a computer at this stage would accelerate the preparation of consolidation Bills.
