HC Deb 09 February 1899 vol 66 c322

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether it is the intention of the Irish Government to introduce any measure of prison reform in the present Session with the object of incorporating in the prison system of Ireland the changes in discipline and general prison regulations which were introduced into the English prison system by the Prisons Bill of last year?


I have directed a Bill to be drafted of the nature indicated in the Question, but I cannot say whether it will be possible to introduce it this Session.
