HC Deb 14 June 1888 vol 327 c105
MR. HARRIS (Galway, E.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he is aware that the tolls and customs of Ballinasloe, which, owing to the great fairs held in that town, come to a large amount of money, are paid to Lord Clancarty; that, out of the money thus received, his Lordship contributes nothing towards the cleansing, lighting, or other municipal expenses of the town; and, if so, will the Government give an instruction to the Royal Commission on Market Rights and Tolls to hold a public inquiry in Ballinasloe?


I have no knowledge as to the matters of fact referred to. I understand that Ballinasloe is one of the towns selected by the Royal Commission at which a public inquiry will be held by the Assistant Commissioners for Ireland in due course.
