§ MR. BRADLAUGH (Northampton)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether any, and what, funds belonging to the Warwick County Court Department were in the hands of Green-ways' Bank at the time of its stoppage; whether such funds stood in the bankers' books as a public or private account; and, whether any loss to the public will arise therefrom?
§ THE SECRETARY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
The sum of £362 8s. 11d. belonging to the Warwick County Court Department was in the hands of Green-ways' Bank at the time of its stoppage. It stood in the bank books in the name of the Registrar quâ Registrar; and only Court moneys were paid into the account, and only drafts in respect of the Court were drawn upon it. The amount of loss to the public will depend upon the realization of the estate.
§ MR. BRADLAUGH
asked, whether the hon. Gentleman was aware that the Registrar of the Court was a partner of the defaulting bankers?
§ MR. JACKSON
said, he did not know whether that was so or not. He was having the whole of the circumstances investigated, with the view of ascertaining whether any further steps should be taken.
