§ Mr. John Morris
asked the Secretary of State for Wales for what purposes Monmouthshire is not treated as part of Wales.229W
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
Monmouthshire is joined to Wales for practically all administrative purposes. For the purpose of arranging Assize itineraries and ancillary matters, it is treated as part of the Oxford Circuit, but under the proposed reorganisation of the higher courts, Monmouthshire will become part of the Wales and Chester Circuit.
