HC Deb 24 June 1858 vol 151 c311

(in the absence of Mr. Powell) said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether Government intend to publish a new and more liberal Table of Allowances to Witnesses at Sessions and Assizes, and whether such Table will be published so early as to be made use of at the approaching Assizes and Sessions; also whether Government intend to propose a more liberal Scale of Fees for Solicitors who are engaged in conducting prosecutions?


replied, that the present scale of allowances would be adhered to until the Commissioners reported, or some reasons were laid before the Government sufficiently strong to induce them to alter it.
