MR. MAC NEILL (Donegal, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state upon what grounds Mr. Conybeare was deprived by the authorities of Derry Gaol, on Thursday last, of the privilege of reading the newspapers?
§ * MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The General Prisons Board report that the Visiting Justices of Londonderry Prison have withdrawn for one week the privilege which they had granted to Mr. Conybeare to receive newspapers, he having misconducted himself by shouting from the window of his place of confinement on the occasion of the discharge of a number of prisoners.
MR. MAC NEILL
Was not the occasion the discharge of the Falcarragh prisoners, and is it a fact that one of the prisoners who was discharged in a dying state actually died on the following day?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The question may be an important and proper one in itself, but it is not a question which arises out of the question on the Paper. I 1024 believe that notice has been given of a question by another hon. Gentleman on the subject.
