§ MR. CLANCY (Dublin Co., N.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, When a Land Sub-Commission Court will sit again in the County of Dublin?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
The Land Commissioners inform me that they cannot, under existing circumstances, state with certainty when a Sub-Commission will sit for the hearing of cases in the County of Dublin. It is not improbable that a sitting may be fixed for the month of September, or part of the month.
§ MR. CLANCY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that since these cases were listed the tenants have already paid one gale of the old rent and have been called upon to pay another gale; and the probability is that before the cases are heard they will be asked to pay a third?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
If the old rent is in excess of the judicial rent, the landlord will have to refund the difference.
