HC Deb 10 March 1882 vol 267 cc587-8

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether, in view of the prevalence of smallpox of a very virulent type in the district of Armagh, he will order the removal of the suspects from Armagh Gaol?


, in reply, said, that a medical officer had been sent to inquire whether the prevalence of smallpox rendered the removal of prisoners under the Protection of Person and Property Act from Armagh Gaol necessary. Following upon that medical officer's Report, an order had been issued to the effect that no person from the county of Armagh be admitted into the prison until further orders, this precaution being all that was deemed necessary.
