HC Deb 13 May 1907 vol 174 cc570-1
MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that the county asylum authorities at Rainhill, near Liverpool, have refused to transfer to an Irish asylum Thomas Slevin, who arrived in Liverpool violently insane on the royal mail steamer "Teutonic," and who was a passenger to Longford; and, in case his friends go for him to the asylum, will he direct that he be handed over to their custody with a view to his removal to Ireland.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) I have made inquiry in this case and I am informed by the asylum authorities that the patient is at present ill in bed and unfit to travel.
