HC Deb 05 July 1910 vol 18 c1601W

asked the Chief Secretary whether, in regard to the vacancy pending on the General Prisons Board (Ireland), in making the appointment to fill the same, recognition will be given to the desirability of filling the post by a medical man specially qualified in mental diseases, in view of the advantage experienced by the English Prisons Board from such expert knowledge?


When the question of appointing a new medical member to the Prisons Board comes to be considered due weight will be given to the possession of a knowledge of mental diseases.
