§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Longford, N.)
asked, If the Solicitor General for Ireland could now inform the House of the number of persons under imprisonment charged with taking part in criminal 1146 conspiracy to induce others not to do what they had a legal right to do; and, further, if he can give any statement to the House as to whether it is intended to furnish the House with the notes of the Judges' decision in the conspiracy cases?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. MADDEN) (Dublin University)
asked for Notice of the Question.
§ MR. T. M. HEALY
said, he asked the Clerk at the Table to place his Notice of the Question, which was on the Paper on Friday, on the Paper for Monday. He did not know why it had not been so put down. Upon the first occasion the hon. and learned Gentleman asked him for further time, and now the Government had seven days' Notice of the Question; and surely they could inform the House how many persons might be, perhaps, illegally in custody upon a charge which the Exchequer Division had decided is insupportable.
§ MR. MADDEN
repeated that he must ask the hon. and learned Gentleman to give Notice of the Question. If he did so, the information would be at once forthcoming.
