IIIThe Number of Special Jurors shall not exceed One-third of the Number of common Jurors.

And whereas in some Counties in Scotland the Number of Persons qualified to serve as Special Jurors, in Terms of the said Act passed in the Fifty-fifth Year of His late Majesty, and of this Act, may be so great as not to leave a sufficient Number to serve as ordinary Jurors in Criminal Trials ; be it enacted, That the Number of Special Jurors to be entered at any Time in the Special Jury Book, for any County, shall not exceed One-third of the total Number of Common Jurors entered in the General Jury Book of such County, after the Names of the Special Jurors shall have been deducted therefrom : Provided always, that any Juror who, although qualified to serve as a Special Juror, may, in consequence of this Provision, not have his Name entered in the Special Jury Book, shall be deemed to be and shall serve as a Common Juror.
