HC Deb 04 April 1892 vol 3 c581

(Galway, E.): I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will give instructions to have Mr. Martin Egan, P.L.G., of Duniry, County Galway, paid the value of his gun, which was seized by the police in consequence of his licence having been revoked by the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, or will he allow Mr. Egan to sell it to a holder of a licence?


(who replied) said: When the owner referred to surrendered his gun on 25th April, 1888, he asked to be allowed to sell it. This the Inspector General of the Royal Irish Constabulary at once assented to, on the condition that it should be sold to a duly licensed person. This permission still holds good.
