£2,200, Supplementary, Supreme Court of Judicature—

MR. T. LOUGH (Islington, W.)

said, he thought this Vote required some few words of explanation. It seemed an extraordinary item.


said, the difference between the original Estimate and the expenditure no doubt was due to the fact that when it was framed the late Government did not contemplate a General Election last year. [Laughter]. The extra cost was due to the election petitions.

In reply to MR. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S. W.),


said, that shorthand notes were taken of these election petition trials for the information of the House.

Vote agreed to.

£10, Supplementary, County Courts—agreed to.
