Selection of Jurors from the Panel

7(1)Where any case shall be remitted to an assize in which an order shall have been made as aforesaid that it shall be tried before a jury composed of men only or of women only, then in balloting for the jury in that case there shall be placed in the bor or glass used for containing the slips of the names of jurors (as provided in section 129 of this Act) the slips containing the names of all the jurors who have been summoned; but in balloting for the jury, persons whose names shall be drawn who are not of the sex of which the jury has been directed to be composed, shall be passed over and not called on to serve on that particular jury; but the jury shall consist of the 15 persons of the sex of which it has been ordered to be composed whose names shall be first drawn and who shall not be successfully challenged. The slips containing the names of persons passed over under this provision shall be laid aside and returned to the ballot glass before another jury is balloted for.

(2)Where no order such as is mentioned in the preceding sub-paragraph shall have been made, then the names of all the persons appearing on the list of assize and summoned to attend shall be placed in the box or glass irrespective of whether they are men or women; and the ballot shall be carried through according to the method presently in use without distinguishing between men and women.
