§ MR. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, with reference to the forestalling of Banagher Great Fair, he will consider the effect of such forestalling on the attendance of foreign or outside buyers, who find themselves disappointed upon arriving on the legal day of the fair in securing the class of horses they came to purchase; and whether, as such buyers are often the principal purchasers of the more valuable animals, he will take steps in the interest of farmers and breeders of horses to prevent the destruction of the legal fair by the practice mentioned.
§ MR. T. M. HEALY
Will the right hon. Gentleman inquire into the whole circumstances and not confine himself to one particular case?
