asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is true that over one hundred respectable farmers and others in the district of Newcastle West, county Limerick, have been waiting for a licence to carry arms for over a month, though they hold duly qualified recommendations; and, if so, will he inform the House why it is the resident magistrate does not perform this duty?


, in reply, said, that he had received a telegram from the resident magistrate stating that he had sent an explanation of this case by post, so if the hon. Member will put his Question to-morrow he could, perhaps, answer it.
