HC Deb 13 June 1893 vol 13 cc899-900

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has been informed that the Rev. S. G. Cotton, late incumbent of the Parish of Carogh, County Kildare, who was recently convicted of gross cruelty to and neglect of the inmates of the Carogh Orphanage, and who was sentenced to six months' imprisonment and a fine of £400, is now out of prison, and is again conducting an orphanage; whether he is aware that the Rev. S. G. Cotton's effects have been seized for payment of the fine; and whether, under the circumstances, he will cause such orphanage to be officially inspected?


I have not yet been able to get the information required, and I will, therefore, ask the hon. Member kindly to put the question again on Monday.
