§ MR. PIM,
on behalf of Mr. M'CLURE, asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether the statement is correct that the Rev. Mr. Cahill has, on several occasions, been refused permission to see Mr. M'Aleese, confined in the county Antrim Gaol, and whether any special reason 357 exists for Mr. Cahill's exclusion, as other clergymen have been admitted?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON,
in reply, said, he had been informed that the Rev. Mr. Cahill, and also one other person whose conduct they considered to have been of an unsatisfactory character, had been refused permission by the Board of Superintendence to see Mr. M'Aleese. They had been informed they would not be admitted except on a direct order from the Irish Executive.
