HC Deb 21 February 1887 vol 311 c173
MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Irish Land Commission will arrange, on the occasion of the holding of their Court, next month, in the County Sligo, to fix some sittings at Grange, where suitable accommodation can be had, in order that some hundreds of poor tenants whose cases are to be heard may be relieved of the necessity of travelling to the town of Sligo, an average distance from their homes of from 14 to 18 miles?


The hon. Member appears to be under some misapprehension. The Connaught Sub-Commission sat in Sligo last month—they are now hearing cases in Mayo, and must make the circuit of the Province of Connaught before they can make further arrangements for sittings in the County of Sligo.
