§ MR. J. J. CLANCY (Dublin County, N.) for Mr. L. P. HAYDEN
306 (Roscommon, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what is the term for which a prisoner named Cormican, now detained in Dundrum Asylum, Dublin, for alleged complicity in the attack on Weston House, County Galway, was sentenced; how much of the term has expired; and whether, considering his conduct and the state of his mind, this prisoner can now be released, in view of the fact that another prisoner sentenced to a longer term at the same time has been since released?
§ *THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. W. L. JACKSON, Leeds, N.)
The convict referred to was sentenced to ten years' penal servitude on 2nd August, 1883, so that nine years of the term have expired. From the Report of the resident physician at Dundrum Asylum it appears that the man's mental condition is such as to render his release unadvisable.
