§ MR. ROCHE (Galway, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the relations which existed between Mr. Daly, of Dunsandle, county Galway, and his tenants; whether he is aware that complaints have been made to the constabulary authorities of the firing of shots at night in the district, and that a constabulary patrol caught a police pensioner, named Hansberry, who is employed by Mr. Daly as bailiff, in the act of firing on the public road between the hours of 9 and 10 p.m. on the night of the 17th February; and, if so, whether, in the interest of the peace of the district, he will arrange that this man shall not have a licence to carry firearms.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
I am informed that the relations between Mr. Daly and his tenants have improved. No complaints have been made to the police in respect of the firing of shots at night in the district, but on the night of the 17th February they detected Hansberry in the act of discharging a gun on the public road. He was prosecuted and fined. J Further inquiry is being made in the matter.
