HC Deb 06 July 1916 vol 83 c1793

It is hereby declared that where imprisonment is ordered by any justice in respect of the non-payment of any rate the imprisonment shall, for the purposes of Section three of the Criminal Justice Administration Act, 1914 (which relates to reduction of imprisonment on part payment of sums adjudged to be paid), be deemed to be imprisonment imposed by a Court of Summary Jurisdiction in respect of the non-payment of a sum of money adjudged to be paid by that Court.


I beg to move, to leave out the Clause, in order subsequently to insert a new Clause which is to the same effect, but is differently drafted.

Question, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill," put, and negatived.
