§ MR. JAMES O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Lord Chancellor of Ireland has considered the action of Mr. James Shanks in signing a licence certificate for a canteen situated in the county Wicklow, Mr. Shanks not being a magistrate for that county, and the local magistrates having refused to grant the licence on the ground that the canteen had been conducted in a disorderly manner; and whether he can now state what decision 171 the Lord Chancellor has come to in regard to Mr. Shanks' action.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
NO decision has yet been come to. The Lord Chancellor is in correspondence with Mr. Shanks in the matter.
