HC Deb 06 February 1893 vol 8 c523

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland how long Mr. A. Hamill has been a Governor of the District Lunatic Asylum for Antrim; how many meetings of the Board have there been in the last three years; how many of these meetings has Mr. Hamill attended; and what was the reason for his recent removal from the Board?


The gentleman referred to was not appointed by the Lord Lieutenant to be a Governor of Antrim Asylum for 1893 by reason of personal considerations, but on the general grounds on which His Excellency acted in constituting the Asylum Boards for 1893, which I have already fully explained to the House.

MR. W. JOHNSTON (Belfast, S.)

Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether the gentleman named was passed over because he was a Unionist, although he was also a Roman Catholic?


Was the gentleman named recommended by other local bodies?


Order, order! These are supplemental questions of which notice ought to be given.
