§ MP. DELANY (Queen's County, Ossory)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the fact that a memorial has been presented to His Excellency signed by magistrates, Roman Catholic priests, Protestant clergymen, and other local residents in Queen's county to the number of sixty-four, recommending Mr. James Flynn, Gosbrook, Mountrath, for a gun licence, he will state upon what grounds Mr. Flynn has been refused a licence; and if he will request the resident magistrate to reconsider this application.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) Mr. Flynn was informed by letter, dated the 8th instant, that the Lord-Lieutenant saw no sufficient reason for interfering with the discretion vested by law in the resident magistrate, who felt himself unable to issue a licence to the applicant.
