§ MR. HAYDEN (Leitrim, S.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether Mr. P. O'Brien, on his release from Tullamore Prison on Wednesday morning, after completing a term of four months' imprisonment, was rearrested and conveyed to Kilkenny to undergo a further term of three months; whether this latter sentence was inflicted while Mr. O'Brien was in custody on the first charge; whether, under the circumstances, the sentence should run from the first day of the Sessions; whether this practice was followed in the case of the hon. Member for South Galway (Mr. Sheehy); and, whether any power lies with a Judge deciding an appeal to 1099 stay the execution of one sentence until that inflicted by another Judge shall have terminated?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
This Question is down without Notice, and as a local reference is necessary I have been unable to obtain a detailed reply. I will, therefore, ask the hon. Member to be so good as to defer it until Monday next.
