HC Deb 09 July 1903 vol 125 c158
MR. DUFFY (Galway, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Mr. Edward Treston, of Gort, County Galway, applied for a gun licence on the 11th June before Mr. Newton Brady, R. M.; and, if so, whether, in view of the fact that Mr. Treston has purchased his farm and that he is summoned yearly as a juror, alike at Gort, Loughrea, and Galway, and in view of his position and character, he will explain why Mr. Treston was refused a licence.


The question of the issue of a licence to keep fire-arms is one for the consideration of the resident magistrate, as licensing officer of the district. The application of Mr. Treston has been referred to the resident magistrate for further consideration.
