§ MR. O'KELLY
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether there is any special reason for the further detention of Mr. Thomas Egan, of Cloonalough, county Roscommon, who has been confined since 24th November 1881; and, if not, whether he will order Mr. Egan to be released?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
Sir, the only answer I can give the hon. Member is that His Excellency reconsidered Mr. Egan's case yesterday, and decided that he could not at present order his release.
