ico2Blog: Commonwealth nations agree change to law as royal pregnancy is announced

It has been a big week for the Royal family, with the announcement that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first baby, followed quickly by the news that the Duchess has been rushed to hospital suffering from the severe, acute nausea and vomiting known as hyperemesis gravidarum.

The news of a royal baby and future heir to the throne has thrown the Government into overdrive on its plans to amend the laws of succession, so that the baby will accede to the throne regardless of its gender.

ico9Community: Jury service

Question: I have been selected for jury service but I cannot attend , what will happen if I don't attend jury service? Can you be jailed or just fined?

Discussion: If you have a good reason for not being able to attend, let the court know and they may well postpone it. If you don't tell the court or if they don't think you have a good reason, you could face a fine of up to £1,000.
