HC Deb 25 June 1888 vol 327 c1127
DR. FOX (King's Co., Tullamore)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, When he will arrange for fair rents to be fixed for the tenants of Edenderry District, some of whom have been kept waiting for over three years?


The Land Commissioners inform me that it is not correct to state that some of the applications to fix fair rents in the Edenderry Union have been kept waiting over three years. The earliest Un-disposed of case in the Kildare part of the Union was served on the 28th of September, 1887; in the Meath part on the 29th of September, 1887; and in the King's County part on the 5th July, 1886. The Commissioners are not at present in a position to state when a Sub-Commissioner will next sit for the disposal of cases in the King's County portion of the Union; but 21 cases have been listed from the Kildare part of the Union for the sitting commencing at Naas on the 2nd of July.
