HC Deb 05 July 1888 vol 328 c426
MR. O'KEEFE (Limerick City)

asked Mr. Solicitor General for Ireland, Is it a fact that Alderman Riordan, the duly appointed locum tenens for the Mayor of Limerick, has been refused admission as a Visiting Justices to the Limerick Prison; and, whether, having regard to the provisions of 16 & 17 Vict., c. 194, s. 69, relating to the locum tenens of the Mayors, he will permit the Mayor's legally appointed deputy in future to visit the said gaol?


I am informed by the Prisons Board that Alderman Riordan's claim for admission as a Visiting Justice was not put forward on the ground suggested by the Question. I have called the attention of the Board to the section referred to by the hon. and learned Member, which, it is right to add, is a provision contained in a Local Act relating to Limerick alone.
