§ MR. REDMOND
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is a fact that Mr. Moloney, at present confined as a suspect in Grangegorman Prison, Dublin, has been refused permission to see his wife except in the ordinary cage, and for fifteen minutes only each day; whether these rules have not been modified in the case of other prisoners who have been permitted to receive visits from their wives of an hour daily, and without the presence of warders; whether it is a fact that upon some occasions when Mr. Moloney had already received visits from friends from the country, even the visit of fifteen minutes in the cage was refused to his wife; whether there is any special reason for these rules being more rigidly enforced in the case of Mr. Moloney than in the case of other prisoners; and, whether the continued imprisonment of Mr. Moloney is due to the fact that Mrs. Moloney is a member of the Ladies' Land League, and that if she retired from that association the Government would release her husband?
§ MR. W. E. FORSTER
, in reply, said, that Mr. Moloney was at present confined as a "suspect." As regarded the visits of his wife, he was allowed to see her just in the same way as other "suspects" were allowed to see their friends. The Rules were not more rigidly enforced in his case than in the case of others. His continued detention was not due to the fact that his wife was a member of the Ladies' Land League.
