HC Deb 17 April 1896 vol 39 cc1177-8

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether, considering that the boy James Morry, confined in Maryborough Prison, has been so long in hospital, and is in a dying state, he will allow of his removal to the county infirmary, where he could be visited by his aged mother?


I have again communicated with the authorities in Dublin in reference to the case of this convict, and have nothing to add to the reply given by me to the similar question put to me yesterday to the effect that his life is not, at present, considered to be in danger. The condition of this prisoner will continue to be very closely watched by both the Medical Member of the Prisons Board and by the Local Medical Officer.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that similar reports were made about the condition of health of Patrick Nalty and Michael Walsh, and that one of these men died in gaol and the other a fortnight before his release was due?


Order, order! That does not arise out of the Question on the Paper.
