HC Deb 22 September 1886 vol 309 c1263

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he can give any information as to the place where prisoners under the Debtors' Act, from county Tyrone, are to be confined, now that the Omagh Gaol is no longer available; and, whether it is legal for the sheriff to take prisoners into an adjoining county?

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. HOLMES)(who replied) (Dublin University)

said, the prisoners who were committed under the Debtors' Act in the county of Tyrone, were now sent, pursuant to the order of the Lord Lieutenant under the Act of Parliament, to the prison in Londonderry.
