HC Deb 12 February 1878 vol 237 c1539

asked the Lord Advocate, If his attention has been called to the case of Agnes Adams, a woman born in Dungannon, in the county Tyrone, who had been many years resident in Scotland, who was, under a warrant granted by two Justices of the Peace for the city of Glasgow, removed from Glasgow and delivered to the Master of Thomastown Union, in the county of Kilkenny, though it appears she was not born in, nor had ever been resident in, and was not in any way connected with, the county of Kilkenny; whether he can state was any, and, if so, what examination made by the said Justices before they addressed a warrant to compel the Thomastown, Union to receive Agnes Adams; has any investigation been made into the conduct of the said Justices in the matter, and what has been the result of the investigation; and, is there any remedy for the injury suffered by the Thomastown Union, and in what way can that Union be recouped the expenses occasioned by Agnes Adams having been thus illegally left a charge on that Union?


The Lord Advocate is confined to his room with severe inflammation of the chest, but he is expected here on Thursday.


I shall repeat the Question on that day.
