To ask the Minister for Finance whether, on the 10th November, 1922, he received from Mr. C.J.P. Farrell, Solicitor, an application, with original County Court Decrees, for payment of compensation to the relatives of Michael Farrell, deceased, and to the relatives of Margaret Grehan, deceased, of Co. Longford, who were murdered during the "Black and Tan" regime, and whether the Minister in question will arrange payment of these claims immediately.

I have received the applications referred to and the cases are now being investigated.
