HC Deb 23 March 1885 vol 296 cc218-9

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If it is a fact that twenty-four of the county Sligo tenants of Sir Gilbert King, who went into the Land Commission Court in order to have fair rents fixed, and who paid in November last the rent due in the previous March, were serve in January with processes for the half-year's rent due in November last; and, whether there is any legal protection for tenants who avail themselves of the Land Act, against legal proceedings contravening the custom of the estate, and imposing costs upon them?


This Question relates to legal proceedings taken by a private individual, as to which the Government has no information. If the gentleman referred to is acting within his legal powers the Government has no authority or right to interfere.
