HC Deb 04 August 1890 vol 347 c1745
DR. FITZGERALD) (Longford, S.

I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland if he can state what alterations have been made in the drainage of Derry Prison since Major Beamish issued his Report with regard to the sanitary condition of the prison; and how often the dusthole of the prison is now cleared out?


The General Prisons Board report that since the Report referred to one of the drains in the female prison has been altered, and now discharges into the Bennet Street sewer, and a ventilating pipe has been erected at the head of the Bennet Street sewer. The dusthole referred to is, by order of the Board, cleared out once a month."
