§ 63. Sir JOHN FERGUSON
asked the Attorney-General if he has now been informed that the Law Society, conjointly with the provincial law societies, are initiating legislation designed to protect the public against losses by solicitors convicted of fraud in the criminal courts; and whether he has received a draft of a proposed Bill?
§ The ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir William Jowitt)
I have received a draft of a Bill which the Associated Provincial Law Societies at a meeting held on the 20th June last resolved to support. I understand that the general principles of the Bill were approved at the general meeting of the Law Society on Friday last, and that it is their intention to proceed with the Bill.
§ Mr. ANNESLEY SOMERVILLE
Can the learned Attorney-General say when it is proposed to introduce the Bill?
