CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. - BILLETING ACCOUNT.

To ask the Minister for Defence if he is aware that a considerable amount is due by the Military Authorities to the proprietress of the Moy Hotel, Ballina, Co. Mayo, on account of billeting of troops and goods supplied, and that several applications have been made for payment, without avail, and as this account is long overdue, will he give instructions to have the matter attended to as early as possible.

A cheque for portion of the billeting account was issued on 16th January and I am awaiting the receipt of details of the remaining portions which have been asked for. There is also an account for damage which will be dealt with as soon as possible.
