HC Deb 08 September 1887 vol 320 c1667
MR. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether there is any Treasury Minute, or other Regulation, which limits the annual Vote for "Criminal Prosecutions, Repayments to Counties and Boroughs;" and, if so, what is the date, and what are the terms of such Minute?


The repayment of the costs of criminal prosecutions is now regulated —subject to the Resolution of this House in Committee of Supply and to the terms of the Appropriation Act—by Treasury Minute of January 29, 1875, which deals with the "costs of prosecutions at Assizes and Sessions and under the Summary Statutes," the latter being at that time the Criminal Justice and Juvenile Offenders Acts.
