§ MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what has been the result of the Conference between the Irish Government and the Irish Prisons Board, concerning the unanimous protest of the Corporation of Belfast against the projected alterations of Her Majesty's Prison at Belfast, upon the several grounds that they would create an eyesore, destroy the frontage line, and deteriorate the value of property in the district?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I have suggested that there shall be a Joint Committee or some analogous body, and in the deliberation of which representatives, both of the Corporation and the Prison Board, shall take part to consider this difficult question. I am in hopes that this plan may lead to a satisfactory settlement of the matter.
