§ 51. Mr. Paget
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will remit the sum of £2,326 8s. 2d., due to the Treasury from Northampton Corporation in respect of the irrecoverable part of the costs of the Treasury incurred in the prosecution of a resident in north Buckinghamshire, named Sorel, in respect of tax frauds committed in north Buckinghamshire.
§ Sir E. Boyle
No. This was a criminal prosecution. Section 1 of the Costs in Criminal Cases Act, 1952, provides that the costs in such cases may be paid from local funds and the Assize Judge made an order accordingly.
