Clerk of Bow County Court to reply to the letter of 17 April 1998 from Ms Marian Temple, 43a Grove Park Road, Wanstead. 
§ Mr. Hoon
The Chief Executive of the Court Service wrote to my hon. Friend about this matter on 2 June of this year. This letter was also in reply to Ms Temple's letter of 17 April. At the time Ms Temple wrote, the court was experiencing difficulties and delays largely due to the introduction of a new computerised system, which has been introduced in all county courts. These problems and delays have now been resolved.
