HC Deb 20 March 1883 vol 277 c937

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether there would be any objection to including in the Return recently ordered of Memorials from Irish Prison Officials for compensation for extra duties, Copies of all Correspondence on the subject between the Irish Prisons Board and the Irish Government and the Treasury?


Sir, I am afraid, I cannot under take to add the Correspondence generally to the Return which has been ordered. It is not customary to lay before Parliament inter-departmental Correspondence, which is usually of a privileged character.
