§ 28. Sir HENRY CRAIK
asked the Home Secretary whether he has had under consideration the hardship, long-continued imprisonment, and pecuniary burden which may be imposed, under the present procedure, upon persons committed for trial upon what is found to be insufficient evidence; and whether he pro poses to submit to the House any legislation which would give compensation for such hardship?
§ Mr. SHORTT
I do not see my way to propose any such charge on the public funds as the right hon. Member suggests.
