§ MR. ROCHE (Galway, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Mr. Owen Maguire, principal teacher of Derryoober National School, County Galway, applied recently for a licence to carry a gun; and will he explain why this application was refused.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRE- LAND (Mr. WYNDHAM, Dover)
The question of the issue of a licence to keep firearms is one for the consideration of the Resident Magistrate, as Licensing Officer of the district. This case has been referred to the Resident Magistrate for such further consideration and action as he may think fit.
