§ MR. BLAKE
said, he would beg to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether it is intended, in filling up the vacancy of Assistant Resident Medical Manager of the Clonmel Auxiliary District Lunatic Asylum, to appoint a gentleman who has bad some previous practical experience in the treatment of insanity?
§ SIR ROBERT PEEL
said, in reply, that Dr. Edmonstone had been appointed to the vacancy by the Lord Lieutenant. Dr. Edmonstone was a physician of some practice in the town of Carrick-on-Suir, and in the country generally; and as he would be under the able superintendence of the experienced head of the parent Asylum, there could be no doubt he would be found fully competent for his duties.
