HC Deb 19 April 1883 vol 278 c625

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Government intend to assimilate the Law in Ireland with regard to the cost of conveyance of prisoners to that in England; and, if so, whether the moneys paid in excess under this head by several counties in Ireland since the passing of the Prisons Act (40 and 41 Vic.) will be refunded?


The points involved in this matter will receive consideration; but I am not at present in a position to make any announcement on the subject, or say whether the Government will think it proper to introduce any legislation on the subject.
