HC Deb 26 October 1916 vol 86 c1322
26. Mr. BRADY

asked the Chief Secretary by what authority, statutory or otherwise, the Irish Executive Government, without trial or consultation with the magistrate, orders the discharge of children from industrial schools who have been sent there by the order of a magistrate who has heard the evidence in the case in open Court?


The discharge of children in the circumstances mentioned is not made unless in cases where their detention had been procured by some improper proceeding.
