HC Deb 13 May 1902 vol 108 c34
MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that officers on duty in Londonderry Prison are, on certain week days, on which they are due for evening duty from six p.m. to ten p.m., obliged to perform eleven hours duty, although the ordinary day's duty should not exceed ten hours; and, seeing that on Sundays those due for evening duty, one p.m. to ten p.m., discharge duty varying from ten hours fifty minutes to eleven hours forty-five minutes, while the length of the day's duty from 6.45 a.m. to ten p.m. should not exceed nine hours fifteen minutes, will he see that this System is changed.


The statements in this Question are correct. An additional warder has been appointed to Londonderry Prison, and the Governor will endeavour to make arrangements to secure that the hours of duty of all officers shall be reduced to ten per day.
