HC Deb 06 November 1902 vol 114 c274

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been directed to the case of Mr. James Casey, Ballaghaderreen, who was refused a transfer of a publican's licence at the last Boyle Quarter Sessions; and whether, in view of the recommendation of the County Court Judge to the Lord Lieutenant to exercise his dispensing powers in this case, he can state what action will be taken in the matter.


No representations have been made to the Lord Lieutenant in this matter. If a recommendation of the character suggested were made, it would receive the attention due to the source from which it came. But I ought to observe that the number of public houses in this locality is already very large.
