HC Deb 12 June 1964 vol 696 c115W
Mr. Matthews

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will amend the Justices Clerks (Accounts) Regulations, 1953, to provide that in future the whole of the accounts of justices' clerks shall be audited by the treasurers of the local authorities concerned, as suggested to him by the Central Council of the Magistrates' Courts Committees; and if he will make a statement.

Miss Pike

Legislation would be necessary to alter the law relating to the audit of justices' clerks' accounts and the responsibility for making good deficiencies. The problems involved have already received careful study and will be further considered in consultation with those concerned.
