HC Deb 30 June 1890 vol 346 cc309-10
MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)

I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether, on the 20th of May last, Mr. T. W. French, R.M., sitting at Tullock Petty Sessions, fined Mr. Joseph Riley for having a dog without a licence, and compelled him to take out a licence; whether it has since been proved to the satisfaction of the police that the dog belonged to a Mr. M'Aloon, and was licensed; and if the expenses incurred by Mr. Riley will be refunded to him?


I am informed that Mr. Joseph Riley was fined 1s. and ordered to take out a licence for the dog. He produced no evidence in Court to the effect that the dog belonged to Mr. M'Aloon, and was licensed at the time; nor has anything since transpired to lead the police to believe that his contention is well-founded.
