§ 112. Mr. TOUCHE
asked the Home Secretary if he will say on what date he intimated that if the London County Council built a new Sessions House for the whole of London at Newington, he would approve a scheme authorising the holding of courts of sessions there?
§ Mr. McKENNA
In a letter of the 23rd July last, in reply to a definite question, I intimated to the London County Council that I would be prepared to approve a 1276 scheme for this purpose, but the previous correspondence was based on the view that the choice of a site for a Sessions House to take the place of the inadequate buildings at Newington and Clerkenwell was a matter for the local authorities.
