HC Deb 05 July 1910 vol 18 cc1602-3W

asked the Chief Secretary if he will state the names of the particular districts in the East Riding of the county of Cork where it has been reported that cattle-driving took place during the six months ending 1st June, 1910, and the number of cattle involved; and whether the owners have applied for or received compensation for malicious injury to those cattle?


There were three cattle-drives in the East Riding of county Cork during the period mentioned in the question—one in the Kinsale police district and two in the Fermoy district. Forty sheep were driven in one case, twenty-one cattle in another, and twelve cattle in the third case. Compensation to the amount of £48 was claimed in the first case, and £100 in the second case. These claims are still pending. No claim was made in the third case.
