Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland. – in the House of Commons on 27th January 1942.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. McNeil:

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is now in a position to make a statement on the possibility of reimbursing Scottish jurors who, in giving service, lose wages and salaries and incur out-of-pocket expenses?

I regret that in present circumstances time cannot be found for the legislation which would be required to give statutory authority for the proposals in the hon. Member's Question. I propose, however, to take administrative action designed to avoid the citation of persons to attend for jury service at long distances from their homes.
