asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, When he proposes to introduce a measure dealing with County Prisons in Ireland?

I had hoped, so far as it was dependent on myself, that this measure might have been introduced at the same time as the English Bill on the same subject, and that the two Bills would proceed pari passu; but, as the English Bill cannot be introduced before Thursday, and arrangements have been entered into between hon. Members for Ireland and myself that no Irish business shall be transacted until after the 12th of June, I fear I am obliged to postpone the introduction of the Bill until that date, but it shall be introduced as soon as possible afterwards.
