Make "Adequate proficiency in English" a requirement to serve on a Jury in the UK

Additional Information

"Adequate proficiency in English" is not a requirement to be able to serve on a Jury in the UK. If you look at conditions to serve on a Jury in the USA and Australia for example then the ability to speak and have a good understanding of the English Language is required to be able to carry out the duties of a Juror. I want this requirement to be brought in and for potential jurors to be vetted to ensure they are able to speak and understand the English Language before serving on a Jury.
