§ MR. M'CARTAN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Joseph Mullet, who was recently transferred from Downpatrick Convict Prison, is in bad health, and that continued imprisonment is likely to cause his death? whether he will have inquiry made with the view of ascertaining if there is any immediate danger to his life; and whether, under the circumstances, he will without delay permit a medical examination of him to be made by an independent doctor named by the mother of the prisoner?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The General Prisons Board state that they have not yet received the information. I must, therefore, ask the hon gentleman to repeat the question on Monday.
