§ Mr. DELANY
asked the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture (Ireland), whether application has been made on behalf of the Roscrea (No. 3) rural district, Queen's County, and the southern part of Abbeyleix rural district to be supplied with an Irish draught or half-bred registered stallion; and, seeing that the county committee have unanimously supported the application during the past three years, will he consider the advisability of acceding to their request?
§ Mr. RUSSELL
The Department have received, through the Queen's County Committee of Agriculture, an application for a registered Irish draught or half-bred stallion for service in the Roscrea No. 3 rural district and in Rathdowney in the Abbeyleix rural district. The Department will gladly accede to the request as soon as a suitable sire can be obtained.
