§ MR. BOLAND
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that six dogs have 267 been poisoned in the village of Sneem within the past few months; and whether the police are taking any steps to put down a practice which has been in operation within the last two years.
THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WALTER LOSG,) Bristol, S.
Four dogs have been poisoned in Sneem within the past few months. The police have done everything in their power to trace the offender, but detection in such cases is obviously difficult.
