HC Deb 26 June 1900 vol 84 cc1135-6
SIR CHARLES CAMERON (Glasgow, Bridgeton)

I beg to ask the Lord Advocate if he will state what was the amount of money paid by prisoners committed to Barlinnie Prison in default of payment of fines in May, 1899, and May, 1900, respectively; in the latter month how much of the money paid consisted of fines paid in full on entering prison, and how much of fines paid under the Fines and Imprisonment (Scotland and Ireland) Act of last session; and in respect of such partial payments would he state the total number of prisoners making payment under the provisions of the Act, and the number of days by which the total terms of imprisonment were thereby curtailed.


It is not convenient to give all the details asked for by the hon. Member in reply to a question in this House, but the Secretary for Scotland will be glad to furnish him with a statement containing the information he desires.
