CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. - COMPENSATION CLAIM.

SEAN O LAIDHIN

To ask the Minister for Defence whether he is aware that a motor car, the property of Mr. John Macken, Castle Street, Roscommon, was commandeered by National troops on the 20th July last, and has not since been returned. As Mr. Macken is a poor man and entirely dependent on his car for a livelihood, will the Minister see he is compensated or his car returned?

I am aware that the car was commandeered. The question of compensating Mr. Macken is now receiving attention.
