§ MR. E. JENKINS
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is his intention to make some alteration in the rules in regard to imprisoned debtors?
MR. ASSHETON CROSS,
in reply, said, that some of the prison rules with respect to debtors had been misinterpreted, and that measures had been taken to make them clearer. They had been generally relaxed, both as regarded the treatment of the debtors themselves, and the admittance of their wives and families to visit them.
