§ DR. ROBERT AMBROSE (Mayo, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (1) on what authority tolls are collected at Newport, County Mayo; (2) to whom do the tolls go; (3) is he aware that there is no weighing machine in the town; and (1) will he explain what right the landlord has to charge Customs for fishing boats coming up to the quay?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The tolls go to Mrs. O'Donnell under the authority, it is understood, of a patent in her possession, though I am not in a position to verify this. There is no 1433 weighing machine in the village, but there are public scales. No Customs or tolls are charged for fishing boats as alleged in the last paragraph.
