To ask the Minister for Defence if he is aware that a sum of money, amounting approximately to £250, is due by the Military Authorities to M.F. Hanly, of Foxford, Co. Mayo, for foodstuffs supplied to the Foxford Garrison and for car hire; that this money is due since last August; that several applications have been made for payment without result, and if he will give instructions that this account be paid immediately.

No accounts have been received at G.H.Q. from Mr. Hanly. The matter is, however, being investigated locally, and will receive urgent attention.
