§ MR. HEALY
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, Whether Mr. Thomas Ryan, of Two Mile Borris, County Tipperary, is still detained in Clonmel Gaol, while Mr. Fanning, in the same locality, arrested at the same time and on the same charge, has been released; and, what reason there is for Mr. Ryan's continued detention?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. W. M. JOHNSON)
Sir. Mr. Fanning was released on the ground of ill-health. He was attacked by fever and removed to the hospital. As soon as the doctor certified that he was fit to travel, His Excellency ordered his release. His Excellency has reconsidered Mr. Ryan's case, but cannot see his way to order his release at present.
