§ MR. ROCHE (Galway, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that on 24th February last a tenant on the Clanricarde estate was prosecuted for shooting a hare without a game licence and fined two pounds; and, seeing that the agent on the estate 886 presided at petty sessions held at Woodford on the occasion, what steps, if any, will be taken in this matter.
§ MR. ATKINSON
The prosecution was at the suit of the Inland Revenue. The defendant was convicted and fined, as stated. He is the son of a tenant on the estate of the Marquess of Clanricarde. The agent of the estate was not disqualified from adjudicating in the case, and no action is called for by Government as suggested.
