§ MR. FLAVIN
I beg. to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state on what date was Sylvester Dwyer, now a prisoner in Maryborough Gaol, convicted, and what 641 was the sentence imposed on him; and can he say for how long Dwyer has now been in prison.
§ MR. G. W. BALFOUR
This prisoner was convicted of a Whiteboy offence at the Cork Winter Assizes on the 10th January, 1888, and sentenced to eighteen years penal servitude. He was in custody awaiting trial from the 9th April in the previous year, so that he has been in prison over thirteen years.
§ MR. COGHILL (Stoke-upon-Trent)
Will Dwyer, after his imprisonment is over, be appointed to an office under the Irish Executive?
