§ MR. MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether it is not the fact that Mr. Conybeare, now a prisoner in Derry Gaol, has lodged a complaint that his eyesight is being injured by the glare of the whitewash on the walls of his cell, and whether steps will be taken to have the walls of the cell washed with some colour that will not be injurious to the eyesight of the occupant?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
Notice of this question 1582 having reached me only a few minutes ago, I am therefore unable to answer it. But I can assure the hon. Member that every precaution will be taken that neither Mr. Conybeare's nor any other prisoner's eyesight shall suffer in any Irish prison.
