HC Deb 07 July 1884 vol 290 cc224-5

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If a Memorial has been received by him praying for a free pardon for Bryan Kilmartin, of Arran; if the grounds on which the free pardon has been prayed for are, that a declaration properly attested was made by a dying man in America, to the effect that he was the real culprit, and that Kilmartin was innocent; if all necessary names accompanied this declaration; and, if steps have been taken by him to ascertain the truth of this declaration?


A Memorial has been received as stated, and it is now the subject of inquiry and consideration.
