HC Deb 01 March 1909 vol 1 c1253W

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?


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.
