HC Deb 30 October 1882 vol 274 cc365-6

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If the Irish Government have considered the complaints which have been made by a large cumber of tenants in the county of Mayo against the manner in which the Land Law Act is being administered by the Sub-Commission appointed to that county; and, whether, having in view the expeditious and satisfactory manner in which the County Court Judge of Mayo has disposed of the cases that were listed for hearing in his court, an arrangement can be made for the removal into that court of cases originally listed for hearing in the Sub-Commission Court, but which, owing to the great number of cases to be heard, cannot be taken for a considerable time?


Although the Land Commissioners inform me that they have received no complaints as to the manner in which the Land Act is being administered by the Mayo Sub-Commission, I know it is alleged that dissatisfaction does exist; but the suggestion made by the hon. and learned Member could not legally be carried out, as there is no provision in the Land Act for the removal of cases from the Court of a Sub-Commission to the Civil Bill Court.


said, that as the matter was one of extreme urgency, he should call attention to it on an early occasion.
