§ MR. W. J. CORBET (Wicklow, E.)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, The result of the inquiries promised into the confinement in a lunatic asylum for seven years of a female, alleged to be of sound mind, and whose case was recently under the notice of the Board of Guardians of Paddington Union?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. STUART-WORTLEY) (Sheffield, Hallam)
(who replied) said: Perhaps the hon. Member will allow me to answer the Question. I have made inquiry, and have ascertained that the woman referred to in the Question was not an inmate of a county asylum, but of the asylum at Darenth, belonging to the Managers of the Metropolitan Asylums Board. The President of the Local Government Board has accordingly taken up the matter, and is making inquiries as to the case.
