§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the application of James Reilly, of Gargrie, Ballinamuck, who made application for a labourer's cottage in that division, was rejected at the preliminary hearing by the rural district council; and whether he will direct that this man's case be dealt with by the inspector, and inquired into when the public inquiry is held.
§ MR. BIRRELL
It is the fact that this man's application was rejected by the district council. It is open to him to attend at the local inquiry and lay his case before the inspector.
