HC Deb 24 November 1884 vol 294 cc265-6

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he will state the result of the special inquiry he promised into the circumstances of the recent sickness and deaths among the warders in Mary borough Gaol; whether, since his answer of the week before last, another death has occurred in the prison; and, whether he will cause a sworn inquiry to be held into the work which has been required of the warders since the additional prison was opened in August last?


Very full inquiry is being made by my direction into the cause of the recent cases of illness and deaths in Mary- borough Prison. It is true that another death has occurred since the former Question. I expect to receive the full Report in the course of this week.
