HC Deb 27 April 1883 vol 278 c1269

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether his attention has been called to a resolution passed by the Board of Guardians of the Granard Union, county Longford, on the 23rd instant, declaring that— Great injustice and hardship" will be inflicted "on the tenant farmers of this Union who have applied to the Land Courts to have a fair rent fixed by the Land Commissioners omitting Granard from the List of Fixtures published for the next sitting; and adding that The cost and trouble, along with the delay, were indeed bad enough without removing the Court of Redress, in many cases, to a distance of twenty-five or thirty miles; and, whether, if this statement be correct, he will take steps to remedy the grievance of which the Granard Guardians complain?


The Land Commissioners inform me that they fixed upon the town of Longford as the best place for the opening of the Court, and that the Sub-Commission has power to adjourn for the hearing of cases to any other town in the county that may be more convenient than Longford to the parties interested.
