§ MR. J. F. X. O'BRIEN (Cork)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will consider the advisability of introducing a Bill dealing with the power of judges to give prolonged imprisonment in cases of contempt of court.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The Government has already stated that there is no necessity for legislation in this matter, the Rules which govern questions of contempt being well understood.
§ CAPTAIN DONELAN (Cork, E.)
Has the attention of the right hon. Gentleman been directed to abuses of this power?
§ No answer was returned.
