HC Deb 01 August 1912 vol 41 c2225
7. Captain CRAIG

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if Mr. John D.O'Connor, chairman of the Kanturk Rural District Council, is the holder of a wholesale beer dealers' licence in the locality; and that, acting as a justice of the peace in virtue of his position as chairman of the council, Mr. O'Connor attended the Petty Sessions of Ballyclough on Monday, the 1st instant, and adjudicated in a case brought under the Licensing Acts and declared himself against a conviction, with the result that the bench was divided and the case had to be adjourned; and whether this action of Mr. O'Connor's will be brought under the notice of the Lord Chancellor and steps taken to enforce a penalty on Mr. O'Connor under Section 60 of the Licensing Act of 1872?


The matter referred to by the hon. Member is still sub judice, and I am therefore not in a position to make any statement regarding it.
