§ MR. FLYNN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received a copy of a resolution from the managing committee of the Cork District Lunatic Asylum calling attention to the state of law which enables insane patients belonging to other counties to be committed and remain chargeable to the local rates if they become insane when about to embark at Queenstown, and to the grievance of patients being deported from England and Scotland after several years of residence in these countries; and, if so, whether the Irish Government will take any steps, by legislation or otherwise, to remedy the alleged grievance.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The resolution has been received. Legislation would be necessary to remedy the grievances referred to, but I am unable at present to give an undertaking to introduce such legislation.
§ MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)
Is it not the fact that a large percentage of these insane people are a result of the South African War.
