§ MR. ROCHE (Galway, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the action of the 854 Agricultural Department in selecting a stallion, the property of Andrew G. Elliott, for the benefit of the small farmers in the Portumna and Loughrea district; and, in view of the fact that the farmers interested object to the selection, will he bring the matter under the notice of the Vice-President of the Board of Agriculture, in order that the intention of the Act may not be frustrated.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The Department is satisfied that the stallion is suitable for the requirements of the scheme. This thorough-bred horse is not the property of Mr. Elliott, but has been leased to him by the owner, the hon. Member for North Fermanagh.
