HC Deb 06 July 1920 vol 131 cc1259-60W

Mr J. DAVISON asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland who recommended to the General Prisons Board the three gentlemen recently appointed to the post of deputy-governor in Maryborough, Mountjoy, and Armagh prisons, respectively; and why the two warders who obtained commissions in the Army were not favourably considered for the position of deputy-governor, in view of the fact that they have more experience and prior claim to those outside the service?

Mr. HENRY: The two gentlemen recently appointed to the posts of deputy-governor at Maryborough and Mountjoy Prisons (there has been no such appointment to Armagh Prison) were selected from the list of applicants on their merits after full consideration of the available candidates including those already in the prisons service.
