HC Deb 20 June 1907 vol 176 c586
Mr. POWER (Waterford, E.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what is the amount per head contributed by the Treasury towards the support of inmates treated at the certified inebriate reformatory at St. Mary's College, Waterford; is he aware that in England, when these homes were first started under the provisions of the Inebriates Act, 1898, 10s. 6d. weekly for each inmate was allowed and continued for six years; and, if so, why is not the same weekly grant made in the case of Ireland.

(Answered by Mr. Runciman,.) I must refer the hon. Member to the Answer which I have given to-day to the hon. Member for West Clare.
