§ MR. SEXTON
asked the Attorney General for Ireland, Whether the Irish Executive have reconsidered the case of Mr. Joseph Ryan, of Cappancur, Tullamore, arrested under the Coercion Act on the 2nd November 1881, and still detained in prison; whether there is anything in the condition of the Tullamore district, lately visited by him, to account for the continued incarceration of Mr. Ryan; and, whether the release, some three months since, of Mr. Henry Egan, of Tullamore, who had been arrested a few days before Mr. Ryan, is to be taken as evidence of the undisturbed condition of the Tullamore district?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. W. M. JOHNSON)
Sir, the case of Mr. Ryan is before the Executive at the present time. Mr. Egan's case was considered and disposed of on its individual circumstances.
