§ MR. W. J. CORBET
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he is aware that although a large number of land cases were listed for hearing by the Sub-Commissioners in Wicklow last week they only sat there one day, consequently a number of applicants who attended with their witnesses, and valuers at great expense were disappointed, their cases being adjourned to a future time; and, whether he can take any steps to require the Sub-Commissioners to continue their Sittings until all the cases listed for hearing in one place are gone through?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
Sir, the Land Commissioners inform me that the Chairman of the Sub-Commission referred to in the Question has reported that he sat with Messrs. Barry and Dunne, on Monday in last week, at Wicklow, and that, for the convenience of the tenants, they sat at Tinahely on Tuesday and Wednesday, and again at Wicklow on Thursday, and heard as many cases as the Lay Commissioners would be able to view to the end of the Circuit. The Chairman sat on Monday and Tuesday of this week with Messrs. Baldwin and Moran, at Naas, at the tenants' request, for the Baltinglass and Naas Unions, and heard as many cases as the 2079 Lay Commissioners would also be able to view to the end of the Circuit. The Circuit arrangements, in fact, appear to have been made with as much consideration as possible for the general convenience.
