asked the Minister for Defence if he is aware that a Ford car, the property of Mr. J. M. O'Connor, of 71 Grand Parade, Cork, was commandeered by the military, under Captain O'Sullivan, in August last; that although repeated applications for its return have been made, it has not been returned; and to ask that, as this man is dependent on this car for his livelihood, if he will issue instructions to have it immediately returned to him.
[WRITTEN ANSWERS.] - MOTOR CAR COMMANDEERED.
I regret that there has been a delay in tracing and identifying Mr. O'Connor's car, and that owing to its bad state it is not feasible to return it to him. The case for compensation will be considered as quickly as possible.
