Good morning, thank you for contacting Just Answer my name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. Are you requesting whether you can defer your jury duty further?
Thank you, ***** ***** wanted to clarify your situation. Under Section 9(2) of the Juries Act 1974 provides that if any person who has been summoned to attend as a juror shows to the satisfaction of the summoning officer that there is good cause why they should be excused from attending, the summoning officer may grant excusal.
I belief that due to the current travel restrictions in place you would be able to demonstrate to the summoning officer that there is good cause for you to be excused further.
Hopefully I have answered your question but if anything remains unclear I will be happy to assist you further.
