§ DR. TANNER
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, if an application to allocate the service premiums for horses, cattle, and pigs (under the provisions of the Probate Duties Ireland and Scotland Act, 329 1888) which Munster is entitled to will be granted for distribution at the spring show held by the Cork Agricultural Society?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The County Cork Agricultural Society made an application some little time ago to the Lord Lieutenant, of the nature suggested in the honourable Member's question. His Excellency, however, having obtained and considered an exhaustive report thereon drawn up by the Council of the Royal Dublin Society, issued his approval of that Society's Scheme for the administration of the grant for 1899; which scheme follows the lines of those found to work with satisfactory results in previous years.
