HC Deb 05 August 1890 vol 347 c1920

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Mr. Jasper Tulley, Editor of the Roscommon Herald, now a prisoner in Tullamore Prison, is suffering from diarrhoea; that he is still sleeping on a plank bed; that he is stripped naked for a portion of each day; and that his life is in danger; and whether he can take any steps to secure an alteration of the treatment of this prisoner?


I have not yet received a special Report on this question, but the allegations therein contained appear from another Report I have received to be unfounded. If, however, the hon. Member will repeat the question I shall obtain further information.


Since a similar question was answered yesterday, I telegraphed to Tullamore for information, and I have received a telegram in reply stating that the facts are true. I will put a further question on Monday.
