asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, "Whether the expenses incurred in conveyance to gaol (to and fro) of prisoners remanded or of prisoners summarily convicted will in future be a charge on the County Rate, or whether such expenses will be repaid by the Treasury?
MR. ASSHETON CROSS,
in reply, said, the expenses referred to by the hon. Member would in future be borne as hitherto as police expenses by the county. The expense of conveyance of prisoners committed for trial to the assizes or quarter sessions from the gaol and from the place where they might be convicted to the gaol again would be borne by the Government.
