§ Mr. DUFFY
asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that four men, namely Martin Moran, M. Glynn, George Graham, and John Coen, were brought before the magistrates some weeks ago on a charge of being concerned in the Kilcolgan murder case, and that the prisoners, through their solicitors, complained that clean linen and underclothing sent to them by their friends had been detained by the prison authorities; and will he explain by what authority the Governor of Galway Prison, or anyone acting under his command, refused to deliver to the prisoners all articles sent to them from their friends outside?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The hon. Member appears to have been misinformed. The General Prisons Board inform me that the prisoners referred to received all the articles sent to them by their friends.
