HC Deb 24 February 1938 vol 332 c577W
Mr. R. C. Morrison

asked the Home Secretary whether the question of a uniform practice of giving receipts in the petty sessional courts in the county of Derby has now been considered; and whether it is proposed to amend the present practice?

Sir S. Hoare

I am informed that the question of giving receipts in respect of fines has been considered by the Clerks to the Justices of the county of Derby and that it has been decided that as from the 1st April next receipts will be given in respect of all fines when the defendant pays in person or when an absent defendant sends a prepaid addressed envelope with a remittance.
