HC Deb 08 March 1917 vol 91 c550
14. Sir W. NUGENT

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, in view of the fact that the prison in Tullamore has been reduced to the status of a minor prison, and that prisoners from county Westmeath are now sent to Mountjoy Prison, he will arrange that one or both of the visiting justices appointed by the Westmeath grand jury shall be put on the visiting committee of Mountjoy Prison?


The existing order constituting the joint visiting committee of Mountjoy Prison does not provide for representation of county Westmeath. In view of the facts to which the hon. Member calls my attention, the question of amending the order will be considered.
