asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the losses caused by the frauds of solicitors convicted in the criminal courts, he will give facilities for an agreed Bill, based upon an amalgamation of the two Bills recently introduced by private Members into the House, for the purpose of protecting the public against losses arising from frauds by solicitors convicted in the criminal courts?
