HC Deb 04 May 1885 vol 297 c1488

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the memorial addressed to the Board of Governors by the male attendants of the Richmond Lunatic Asylum on the 10th of June 1884, as directed by the then Chief Secretary, on the subject of their grievances, and other applications prior and subsequent to that date, have been yet considered; if any decision has been arrived at; and, if so, when the memorialists may expect to receive an answer?


I find that the Board of Governors of the Richmond Asylum transmitted to the Inspectors in January last some proposals in favour of the attendants, and that, for some cause or other which is unexplained, the Inspectors have only very recently submitted the proposals to Government. I have asked for an explanation of the delay, and have given instructions for the matter to be pressed to an early decision.
