§ SIR BALDWYN LEIGHTON
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he has issued an order directing that prisoners, discharged from the Government gaols unprovided with sufficient clothing, should be supplied with such clothes by the union authorities in which the prison is situated, although they might belong to other unions or other counties; and, if so, under what authority he has so acted?
§ SIR WILLIAM HARCOURT
, in reply, said, he had further made inquiry into this matter and directed Returns to be made. These came in only that morning, and from them he found that the matter was one of very small pecuniary value. He hoped shortly to make arrangements which would be satisfactory to the local authorities.
