§ Bill considered in Committee.
§ (In the Committee.)
§ MAJOR NOLAN
said, that a considerable time ago the late Chief Secretary for Ireland (Sir Michael Hicks-Beach) promised that a change would be made in the appointment of the Committee of Management, and of the Governors of Lunatic Asylums in Ireland. At present, there was no election of these officers; they were simply appointed at the pleasure of the Lord Lieutenant; and the promise of the late Chief Secretary, that a change would be made in the mode of their appointment, had not yet been redeemed.
§ SIR MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH
replied, that the promise referred to by the hon. and gallant Gentleman had been more than redeemed by the proposals contained in the Grand Jury Law Amendment Bill.
