§ SIR JOHN KENNAWAY
asked the hon. Member for Penryn, If he would state on what authority he has stated that in Exeter Gaol the proportion of recommittals to the total number of prisoners committed was 65 per cent?
MR. H. T. COLE
, in reply, said, that the statement which he made, or certainly intended to make, was that the recommittals were 35½ per cent. The authority which he had for that statement was a most valuable Return obtained in 1872 by the hon. Baronet himself.
