HC Deb 01 March 1962 vol 654 c172W
Sir C. Osborne

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to give English courts the same powers as Scottish courts to authorise the deduction from wages of fines imposed by the courts, as is done in the Armed Forces; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. R. A. Butler

No. I made clear to the House at the time of the discussions on the Maintenance Orders Act, 1958, that the Government would not extend the system of attachment of wages beyond the cases covered by that Act.
