§ DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether prtients suffering from typhoid fever in Clonmel Prison have been or are being treated in 291 the ordinary prison hospital; and, if so, whether the hospital is a portion of the building and under the same roof that the governor's, clerks', and prisoners' necessary offices are situated, also with the chief warder's dwelling; and whether the milk for prisoners is daily tested in these offices?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
The General Prisons Board report that the prisoners suffering from typhoid fever in Clonmel Prison are treated in one of the prison hospitals specially set apart for them. The roof of this building is continuous with that over the portions of the prison mentioned in the question; but these portions are distinct from the hospital, and have no communication with it, each opening into different ground. A small quantity of the milk supplied by the contractor is daily tested in the Governor's office.
