HC Deb 01 August 1906 vol 162 c1037

To ask Mr. Attorney-General for Ireland whether any steps have been taken with reference to granting a new patent for the holding of fairs to the Ballina Urban District Council.

(Answered by Mr. Cherry.) The Urban District Council of Ballina, county Mayo, recently expressed a desire to obtain a patent to hold monthly fairs at Ballina. The Lord-Lieutenant caused them to be informed that this could be effected only on an application by the owners of the existing patent of which the district council are lessees, the council as lessees to join in the application. No such application has since been received.
