HC Deb 30 March 1882 vol 268 cc305-6

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether, in view of the serious defect in the sanitary arrangements of Omagh Gaol, disclosed in the Report of Dr. Cruise, he will order an inspection to be made into the condition of all gaols where prisoners under the Coercion Act are at present detained in Ireland?


, in reply, said, that he had arranged for an inquiry to be made into the sanitary condition of all gaols in which prisoners were detained under the Coercion Act. Omagh Gaol was in a satisfactory state on the whole, but that was not the case as regards that part of the prison in which the "suspects" were confined.
