§ MR. HAYDEN (Roscommon, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will explain why Mr. Newell, Resident Magistrate, Ballinasloe, has refused a gun licence to Mr. Thomas Mulvey, a farmer living near Thomastown, Athlone.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
No application has been received from Mr. Thomas Mulvey. But one was received from Mr. John Mulvey. He refused to take out a ten shilling Excise licence, and hence the Resident Magistrate had no authority to issue to him a licence under the Peace Preservation Act.
