MR. MITCHELL HENEY
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether it is the intention of the Government to select the Inspectors under the new Prisons Board from the Local Inspectors when they are found efficient?
§ MR. J. LOWTHER
There are only three Inspectors of Prisons in Ireland to be appointed under the new Prisons Board. The local Inspectors, as the hon. Gentleman is aware, are a very numerous body, and they will be eligible, like all other persons, as candidates; but it is not the intention of the Government to confine it to them.
