HC Deb 31 July 1882 vol 273 c206

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether, in view of the release of Mr. John Gannon, of Kilmore, county Roscommon, he can now advise the release of Mr. James Murphy, who was arrested at the same time and on the same charge as Mr. Gannon; and, whether, in view of the fact that Mr. Murphy has now been imprisoned on suspicion for a period of seven months, he will give his earliest attention to Mr. Murphy's case?


Sir, His Excellency fully considered James Murphy's case on the 13th instant, and decided that he could not at present order his release.
