§ MR. M'CARTAN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, considering the declaration made by Edward Andrews, the father of the boy who was killed, and the strong feeling entertained by a large number of people in Dublin as to the innocence of Matthew Kinsella, who has already served ten years' penal servitude, he will now cause fresh inquiry to be made into the circumstances under which he was convicted, with the view of remitting the remainder of his sentence?
§ MR. JACKSON
Sir, the case of the convict referred to has already been under the consideration of two successive Lord Lieutenants, including the present Viceroy. They decided that the law must take its course; any new facts, however, that may be embodied in a memorial to the Lord Lieutenant will, I have no doubt, receive his Excellency's careful consideration.
