Lunacy (Ireland) Bill, 1901


Lord Ashbourne, Lord Chancellor of Ireland, has introduced a bill, which has passed its third reading in the House of Lords, with a view to amending the Irish Lunacy Laws by applying to Ireland certain provisions which have been in operation in England for some years. The bill provides that the Lord Lieutenant may have the power of discharging criminal lunatics conditionally, and may be able, in case the conditions are broken or the discharge is otherwise revoked, to again order by warrant the detention of the criminal lunatic.
