Proposals for Circuit Court sittings

Dear Colleagues,

A committee has been formed (aren’t they always) to examine how Courts are to sit going forward with Covid 19. I am informed that there are to be proposals for various Circuits. For example, whether there should be a Court Western Circuit should sit on a Monday, or whether we should sit during September.

I have my own personal views on these matters. However, I would like to at least present some semblance of not making representations that would suit me. To that end, please could you let me whether you feel a Judge should sit on Mondays going forward, or whether we should sit through September.

Kind regards,

John Martin
