§ SIR STAFFORD NORTHCOTE
said, it was the intention of Her Majesty's Government to bring forward Votes for the maintenance of Convicts and Convicted Misdemeanants confined in County Jails after sentence, and also for the expenses of Witnessess at Assizes and Sessions. Correspondence was still going on respecting the matters referred to the Select Committee last year. As to the subject of Medical Relief in Irish Unions, it was under the consideration of the Government, but he was not prepared to say when a Bill in reference to it would be introduced.
