§ GENERAL DUNNE
said, he wished to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland, What portion of the amount received for Licenses for Dogs in that country had been applied to the administration of the Act, and how 104 the sum of £8,660 9s. 2d., the difference between the sum received, £35,379 16s., and £26,719 6s. 10d. paid over to counties, had been applied. He also wanted to know whether there was any objection to produce a Return of the remuneration assigned to each Petty Session clerk in Ireland?
said, he should be happy to lay the Returns on the table, and to give every information as to the mode in which the sum of £8,660 had been expended. The sum paid to clerks of Petty Sessions was something like £4,500, but this was only, to be considered as an experimental arrangement by which the Government were not pledged for future years. The whole Question would be considered during the Recess.
