§ Mr. SHEEHAN
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he is aware that the Macroom Rural District Council served a notice to quit, dated 27th June, on Michael Shine, Knockavullig, Killinadrish; and, seeing that Shine had paid his rent on 25th June to Collector Barnard, clearing him of all liabilities to 30th June, will he explain why a notice to quit was served in this particular instance where no rent was due and where there had been at no time a refusal to pay rent?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
I have no information as to this case. The serving of a notice to quit on the tenant of a labourer's cottage is a matter entirely in the discretion of the rural district council concerned.
