HC Deb 14 July 1881 vol 263 c833

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the fines imposed and levied at Petty Sessions, in cases of drunkenness occurring within the municipal boundary of Tullamore, are now paid into the Fines and Penalties Office; whether such payments should not, under the provisions of "The Towns Improvement (Ireland) Act, 1854," and the 30th section of the Licensing Act of 1874, be paid to the Town Commissioners of Tullamore; and, whether, if that be so, he will cause the necessary instructions to be given for that purpose?


in reply, said, that under the Acts referred to in the Question of the hon. and learned Member, one-half only of the fines in question were payable to the Town Commissioners, and he believed they were so paid at present.
