HC Deb 04 February 1818 vol 37 c146
Mr. W. Smith

said, he had brought forward yesterday, respecting the expence of obtaining coppice of informations from the Crown-office, that it was not open to any of those objections which had been urged against it. He then moved, "That there be laid before this House, an Account of the Fees which have been taken by the Clerks in the Crown-officio for Libel, given to persons accused, or to others on their behalf, applying for the same, during the years 1816 and 1817; specifying the rate according to which the charge is made, the total sum in each particular case, and to whose or what use the same is applied."—The motion was agreed to.
