§ MR. CUNINGHAME GRAHAM
I beg to ask the Attorney General if he will lay upon the Table of the House a Copy of the Allocatur or taxed costs of the Crown in "Mitchell v. Regina," amounting to £160 15s. 6d., and dated 8th May, 1890, and inform this House if it is true that the following is written on it:—
§ "By consent of the parties I hereby cancel this Allocatur.
§ "W. F. ARCHIBALD, June 18th, 1890.
§ "A Master of the Supreme
§ Court of Judicature."
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir R. WEBSTER, Isle of Wight)
There is no necessity to lay upon the Table a Copy of the Allocatur. The Crown did not press for the costs of the proceedings out of consideration for Colonel Mitchell, and at his request, on the distinct arrangement in writing that Colonel Mitchell's supposed claim should not again be raised in any shape.
