HC Deb 27 November 1893 vol 18 cc1800-1
MR. GILHOOLY (Cork Co., W.)

I bog to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether a copy of the evidence given at the coroner's inquest as to the cause of the death of Jeremiah M'Carthy in Cork Gaol will be laid upon the Table of the House; and whether any further proceedings with regard to the action of the police and the Governor of Cork Gaol in this matter are contemplated?


I do not think it would be worth while to lay this evidence upon the Table of the House, because the proceedings were fully reported in the local Press at the time, and the records are accessible to all who may be interested. I should like to add that the whole case is now under my careful consideration. It demands some consideration, and perhaps my hon. Friend will put it again in a few days.


On Monday.
