§ MR. HEALY
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Lord Lieutenant considers that the peace of Dublin, where he resides, would be endangered by the re- 1255 lease of Mr. J. P. Quinn from Enniskillen Gaol; if it is the fact that, although he has been arrested for incitement to non-payment of rent, the Government can show no speech containing such incitement; whether he is aware that Mr. Quinn simply acted under Mr. Brennan, who has since been released, in the Land League office; and, if he can assign any reason for Mr. Quinn's continued detention, now that men holding higher positions in the Land League organization have been released?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
His Excellency had this case under consideration on the day before yesterday, and is unable at present to order Mr. Quinn's release. I must repeat to the hon. Gentleman—what I have said in answer to many questions asked from various points of view—that I can enter into no detail in matters referring to the discretion of the Lord Lieutenant.
