HC Deb 14 February 1893 vol 8 c1385
MR. CARSON (Dublin University)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state the names of all convicts in Ireland whose sentences have been wholly or partially remitted or reduced since the 21st of August, 1892; and for what crimes such convicts respectively were convicted, and to what terms of imprisonment such convicts respectively were sentenced?


I have received from the General Prisons Board a Report containing the information required by the hon. and learned Member. The cases of 14 convicts are included in the Report; and as it would take up too much time to read the details, I would suggest that the lion, and learned Member should move for the information in the form of a Return, which will be unopposed by Government.
