asked the Attorney-General whether he has considered the situation referred to by Lord Greene, Master of the Rolls, in the Court of Appeal, that under present Statute Law it is impossible to have a fourth division of tile court; and whether it is intended, at an early date, to amend the law so that where the Appeal List is in a congested state, additional divisions of the Court of Appeal may be constituted.
