§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that at a recent petty sessions court at Ballinamuck, County Longford, a man was fined £24 for a shebeen offence: and, having regard to the circumstances of this man and the fact that his friends and neighbours had to subscribe the amount to enable him to pay the fine, will he request the Treasury to refund some portion of the amount.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
I have nothing to add to my reply to the hon. Member's previous Question of 9th June on this subject.
§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the alternative in this case was twelve months imprisonment.
§ *MR. SPEAKER
Order, order! The right hon. Gentleman has stated he has† See (4) Debates, cx., 934.518 nothing to add to his former reply, and the hon. Member—whether satisfied or not—must accept that answer.
