§ Mr. LYNCH
asked the Chief Secretary whether his attention has been called to recent prosecutions of parties in Kilrush, West Clare, for leaving cars in the street while the drivers are doing business in adjacent houses; whether he knows that if the traffic were increased fifty-fold there would still be no congestion nor detriment in the streets of Kilrush; and whether instructions will be given to cause these prosecutions to cease?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The police authorities inform me that no such prosecutions have taken place. Persons have recently been prosecuted for leaving carts in some of the public streets at Kilrush without a horse or other animal being harnessed to them, thereby causing serious inconvenience and obstruction to traffic.
