§ MR. JOHN O'DONNELL (Mayo, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, seeing that the floors of nearly all the cells in His Majesty's Prison at Tullamore are flagged with a kind of stone known as sweating stone, he will advise the General Prisons Board to have boarded flooring put in cells which have no fires, in the interest of the health of the prisoners.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
I am advised that the stone flags are very dry in all seasons, and that they are in no way detrimental to health. Fires are not placed in prison cells which are heated otherwise.
§ MR. JOHN O'DONNELL
Well, I am in a position to say that the right hon. Gentlemen's information is not correct.
§ MR. DELANY (Queen's Co., Ossory)
Has the right hon. Gentleman ever been an inmate of Tullamore Gaol?
