§ MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Tyrone Sub-Commission, announced to commence its sittings on the 1st of May next, will be confined to the hearing of fair rent applications from the Unions of Omagh, Castlederg, Strabane, Gortin, Irvinestown, and Enniskillen; whether the entire Division of South Tyrone, embracing the baronies of Middle and Lower Dungannon, and Closher, will be excluded by this arrangement; and, when cases from this large agricultural district are likely to be heard?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
The Land Commissioners inform me that the sitting of the Sub-Commission in County Tyrone, which will commence on the 1st of May, will be confined to cases from the Unions named in the first part of the Question. The Sub-Commission will take up cases from the other Unions of the county in June next.
