HC Deb 10 June 1880 vol 252 c1602

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, bearing in mind the answer given by his predecessor on the 19th of June 1879 in reference to the number of prisoners from each of the three Ridings indicted at the preceding assizes held in the City of York, it is his intention to take such steps as will lead to such assizes being held at Leeds as the most convenient place, as so large a proportion of the prisoners go from the west riding?


replied on behalf of the Home Secretary, and said the subject was now receiving the attention of the Home Office. No decision had been arrived at; but the result of the inquiry would be communicated to the hon. Member when completed.
