As I did not find either, here is my explanation.

A CORRECT
B "the principle of all juries being" is awkward
C "was to be necessary in" is grammatically incorrect
D It has the same structure of A, but uses "is". As we are talking about something that started in the past A is the best choice.
E "the principle of all juries being" is awkward
