The Secretary of State has received various representations as to the difficulty often experienced by Courts in dealing suitably with girls who are leading immoral lives or have been contaminated by immoral surroundings and are consequently dangerous companions for other girls, and he is glad to say that in the past year two schools for the reception of such girls have been opened by the Church Penitentiary Association:- St Winfred's School Wolverhampton And St Michael's School, Charlotte Street Lemington; Both have been certified by the Secretary of State for the Children Act, the former as an Industrial School with accommodation for thirty five girls, and the latter as a Reformatory School with accommodation for forty girls, only girs of the class indicated will be received into the schools, and, all possible steps will be taken to classify cases and prevent further contamination of younger by older girls. Mr McKenna hopes that these Schools will meet the needs of a special provision for girls of this class and will remove the difficulties which have hitherto excluded such cases from the benefit of Reformatory and Industrial Schools treatment.

General Order 137 28th May 1912 Special Police Reserves In accordance with instructions received from the Right Hon the Secretary of State. Home Office Department, and a Resolution passed by the Standing Joint Committee it has been decided to form a Special Police Reserve for the area under the jurisdiction of the Cheshire Constabulary to assist the ordinary Police Force of the County in case of National or other serious emergency. The Chief Constble forwards herewith copies of a Form of Agreement which has been drawn up bythe Clerk of the Standing Joint Committee and he directs that Superintendents will carefully peruse the same and List of person who have signified their willingness to serve in Class "B" Special Constables, and will select from the list and from other sources, men between the ages of 20 years and 40 years, who are willing tojoin the Special Police Reserve; they must be physically fit, of steady habits and trustworthy character and have been accoustomed to discipline and drill, having been trained in the Navy, Army or Police (Army and Navy Reservists, and members of the Territoral Force excluded) or considered to be otherwise specially qualified for Police Work. Superintendents will call upon the men elected at their residence, and after reading and explaining to them the terms of the agreement, ask them to signet, and if they will do so their names and other particulars will be entered on the accompanying Form, which, together with the Forms of Agreement, duly signed, will be sent to this Office on 15th June 1912. It will be explained to the men enrolled in the Special Police Reserve that they will be required during the year of 1912 to attend at Divisional Head Quarters on three days (which can be hereafter arranged, as far as possible to suit their own convenience, for the purpose of receiving instruction in their duties, especially that they may note the manner in which prisoners are charged. It is very desirable that on one day these Reservists should attend Petty Sessions or occasional Court. Each man when called upon for training or on emergency will be expected to perform eight hours per day, such to count from the time he leaves home to the time of returning thereto, for which he will be paid 5s/- per day and reasonable travelling expenses, if any incurred. As a commencement 20 men will be the maximum in the smaller Divisions and 30 men in the larger (including Wallasey Borough). The Chief Constble considers that the success of the Scheme is largely dependent upon the way each Superintendent explains the terms of the agreement to the men selected, as, if not properly understood, the legal phraseology of the same may cause some men to cause some men to hesitate as to signing of the Form, and he points out that it is not only necessary for the Constabulary to carry out the directions of the Home Office and the Standing Joint Committee, but it is greatly in the interest of each Superintendent to have in his Division a certain number of civilians who could be relied upon in emergency to assist the Police in a useful and practical way. A copy of the Form for signature and content is provided for information in this General Order.

Home Office Whitehall S.W. 20th August 1912 Sir I am directed by the Secretary of State to say that having had his attention drawn to the hardship tht is sometimes caused to persons committed to prison in default of payment of a fine and costs, by including the cost of their conveyance to goal in the costs for whom they are made liable, he has come to the conclusion that no good purpose is served by continuing this practice and he therefore requests that the cost of a prisoner's conveyance to goal may not be included in the costs mentioned in the warrant of commitment. The following Rule has been made by the Lord Chancellor providing for the amendment of the Forms in the Rules made by him under the Summary Jurisdiction Acts:- "The following Forms, namely, Forms 11, 12, 13, 16, 17, "18, 19, 20, 21, 21. 2,. 29, 31, 55, and 34 in Part 1 of the " Schedule to the Summary Jurisdiction Rules 1886 of " Forms 5 and 6 in Schedule A of the Summary Jurisdiction " (Children Act) Rules 1909, shall be amended by the "omission of the word "and his conveyance to "the said prison" and the words "and of his conveyance to "the said prison" and the words "and of his "conveyance to the said prison (or place of detention "wherever they occur" The Court will of course, still have power to impose this charge for special rasons, but such cases will, the Secretary of State believes, be exceedingly rare. There is also power under Section 26 of the Indictablee Offences Act 1848, to order payment of costs and conveyance in the case of a prisoner committed for trial and under Section 1 of 3 James Cap. 10 in the case of a convicted offender, but these Sections apply only if the prisoner is shown to have means to pay, and it will very rarely be desirable to make the Order. The Circualr issued from the Home Office in April 1885 and subsequently to certain Courts where it was not the practice to insert in warrants of commitment the amount of the cost of conveyance to prison which a prisoner was ordered to pay is hereby withdrawn. I m to add that the omission from the committtment of an order for the payment by a prisoner of the cost of conveyance to Court will not in any way affect the practice whereby Police Authorities recover such costs from the Prison Commissioners. I am Sir Your obedient Servant Edward Troup. The Chief Constable directs that the Police when furnishing Justice's Clerks with particular amounts to be charged in costs against offenders will be careful not to include the cost of conveyance to prison. These expenses will be entered on Form F.11 A.and be sent to this Office quarterly heretofore as the Prison Commissioners are still responsible for the payment of same.
