§ 88. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty on what grounds the English Government in Ireland discriminate between individuals in carrying on the lawful industry by which they live; why, for example, has Mr. Maurice O'Connell, Renard Road, Cahirciveen, been refused a permit to carry on his industry of fishing in his boat "St. Fiacri" in which his money is invested, while permits have been given to other boat owners in the same district; and whether a permit will now be given or compensation paid for the loss occasioned by refusal of it?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the ADMIRALTY (Dr. Macnamara)
Fishing permits are issued in Ireland to persons recommended by the Department of Agriculture and Technical Instruction. Nothing is known at the Admiralty as to the particular ease referred to.
§ Mr. GINNELL
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that I was referred to the Admiralty for this information by the Chief Secretary?
