§ MR. MAURICE HEALY (Cork City)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, if he can state the reasons why the present Deputy Governor of the Cork male prison was removed from Belfast and Kilmainham prisons, and why he was transferred to Cork; and, what the highest official position in the prison held by a Roman Catholic is?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The Deputy Governor of Cork male prison was transferred from Belfast to Kilmainham prison, and from Kilmainham to Cork, in the interests of the public service in connection with the promotion and transfer of other officers. The highest official position held by a Roman Catholic in the Cork Prison is that of Medical Officer.
