§ MR. BOLAND (Kerry, W.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieu I tenant of Ireland whether he is aware that an application to the Congested 833 Districts Board for four trap nets was made by John Sullivan, of Nedanone, Castle Cove, county Kerry; that the application was granted, but the nets, when forwarded to the applicant, were found to be 46½ yards short; and whether the deficiency will be made good before payment from the applicant is demanded.
(Answer.) The facts are correctly stated. The deficiency was due to shrinkage in the process of tanning the nets. It appears to be the custom in the trade to quote for nets in the un-tanned state, but as the applicant may not have understood this when he applied for the nets, the maker has agreed to supply the deficiency without further charge.—(Irish Office.)
