§ MR. O'SULLIVAN
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, If he is aware that John R. O'Gorman had to pay a large amount in damages and costs for refusing to entertain an emergency man at his hotel in Charleville; whether he has been arrested and detained in prison for over six months; and, whether he will give orders for his release?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. W. M. JOHNSON)
Sir, I believe that some persons who were 234 refused admission into Mr. O'Gorman's hotel without lawful excuse brought actions against him, and in one of those actions recovered heavy damages. Whether the plaintiffs in those actions were Emergency men or not I do not know; but their case was that they were guests unlawfully refused accommodation by an innkeeper. The last two paragraphs of this Question are governed by my reply to the Question of the hon. Member for Wexford (Mr. Healy).
