HC Deb 06 March 1885 vol 295 c292

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Honourable Charles Bourke is to continue Chairman of the Irish Prisons Board; whether it is the fact that Captain Barlow and Sir John Lentaigne are to retire; and, whether it is intended that an English medical man is to go to Ireland periodically to report on Irish prisons?


Mr. Bourke will retain the office of Chairman of the Prisons Board. Captain Barlow is about to retire; but Sir John Lentaigne will continue, as at present, an unpaid member of the Board. It is not the intention of the Irish Government to employ an English medical man, as suggested in the Question. Dr. M'Cabe, at present an Inspector under the Local Government Board, will be appointed medical officer to the Prisons Board.
