§ Mr. LONSDALE
asked what was the number of cases of cattle-driving tried before juries in the year ended 31st March, 1908; what were the results of the trials in such cases; and what was the amount of the fees paid to the Law Officers, in addition to salary, during the financial year ended the same date?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
There were ten trials before juries for cattle-driving in the year ended 31st March, 1908. One case resulted in a conviction, three in acquittals, and six disagreements. As regards the last paragraph of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to page 358 of the Appropriation Accounts for the year 1907–8, which have recently been presented to Parliament.
