Judge on commendable absence of crime

Hertfordshire Mercury, 19th June 1931

Mr Justice Horridge in his charge to the Grand Jury said he always confined this remarks on these occasions to what he thought was the subject to which they ought to be directed, namely, the Calendar of crime for this county, and not wasting time on extraneous matters. The Calendar here was one of a most ordinary description and would give the Grand Jury no trouble whatever. There were only eight cases, three of these came from another county, Cambridgeshire, leaving only five from Hertfordshire, an absence of crime which was highly commendable to the county.
