§ Mr. TALBOT (Oxford University)
To ask Mr. Attorney-General whether it is intended, under the. Criminal Appeal Bill, that a shorthand report of all evidence in the trial of indictable offences shall be taken, and also a shorthand report of the summing up of the Judges and chairmen in such cases; and, if so, whether any estimate has been made of the probable cost.
(Answered by Sir John Walton.) Yes. It is intended that a shorthand note shall be taken in all cases; but that such parts only of such note be transcribed as may be ordered by the Court of Criminal Appeal. No estimate of cost has been made
