HC Deb 17 July 1975 vol 895 c582W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will institute discussions with local authorities with a view to arriving at agreed arrangements for the designation of courts for, and the financing of, trials requiring conditions of special security.

Dr. Summerskill

The selection of the place at which a person is to be tried on indictment is a matter for the courts. On the question of financing I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to a Question by the hon. and learned Member for South Fylde (Mr. Gardner) on 4th July.—[Vol. 894, c 571–2.]
