HC Deb 12 June 1857 vol 145 c1740

Order for Second Reading, read.


remarked that by the Act constituting the Central Criminal Court a portion of the southern part of the county of Essex was brought within its jurisdiction. There they had no police Magistrates; and he therefore thought that some exception ought to be made in the case of prisoners committed by the local magistrates from that district.


said, the present was not the proper occasion for going into the details of the measure. When they got into Committee he should be happy to attend to any suggestion the hon. Gentleman should make, but the committals from the district referred to were so few that he did not see any grounds for exempting them from the Act.

Bill read 2o, and committed for Tuesday next.

House adjourned at a Quarter before One o'clock, till Monday next.
