HC Deb 12 March 1857 vol 144 c2212

said, he would beg to ask the hon. Gentleman the Under Secretary for War whether there was any intention to establish a military prison in connection with the camp at the Curragh, and, if so, whether any steps had been taken as yet with respect to it?


in reply, said, that two propositions had been made for the establishment of a military prison, one for the purchase of an existing civil prison, and the other for the erection of a new prison within the limits of the camp of the Curragh. No decision had yet been come to upon those propositions.
