HC Deb 05 May 1903 vol 121 c1375

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will state what action has been taken on the Reports of the Inspectors of Lunatics as to the state of Sligo Asylum; and what steps have been taken to carry out the resolutions of the Leitrim County Council and the Mohill Rural District Council to have the Leitrim Poor Law Unions amalgamated, and one of the workhouses thus dispensed with converted into an auxiliary asylum for the patients in excess of the authorised number at present detained in Sligo.


The Asylum Committee has called for plans and specifications with a view to the reconstruction of the sanitary system of the asylum where defective. The question of union amalgamation will be referred to the Commission about to be appointed for the purpose of inquiring generally into this subject.
