§ 78. Mr. KING
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he is aware that the medical authority whom he permitted to visit Mrs. Gonne MacBride in Holloway Prison has advised her return to Dublin to be under Dr. Crofton; whether he intends to refuse Mrs. MacBride's application for permission to carry out this medical advice; and whether he can promise a speedy decision in this matter?
§ Mr. SHORTT
The medical authority recommends that Mrs. MacBride requires active medical and open-air treatment in a suitable climate. I am quite willing to 3417 allow Mrs. MacBride to reside in any sanatorium or other suitable place in England or Scotland, and if she will communicate to me the name of the place selected I will grant the necessary permission at once.
