§ MR. YOUNG (Cavan, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, with reference to the last Report of the Inspectors of Lunatic Asylums in Ireland, whether he is aware that it contains no Report as to the Monaghan District Asylum; whether he is aware that the Monaghan Asylum district extends over the two Counties of Monaghan and Cavan; if he will state why no Report was published; and whether, in the public interest, an inspection will be made and a Report published without delay?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Asquith,), Fife, E.
who answered all the questions addressed to the Chief 1528 Secretary for Ireland, said: The Inspectors inform me that no Report was published respecting this Asylum in the last Annual Report, because their visit to the institution in 1892 had reference only to the provision of further accommodation and to correspondence between the Board of Governors and the Board of Control. The Asylum was again visited in March last, and a Report of the inspection furnished to the Board of Governors, a copy of which I shall be happy to give to the hon. Gentleman, if he desires it.
