§ MR. W. ABRAHAM (Limerick, W.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the leasehold tenants on the County Lime-rick estate of Mr. William Lane Joynt, Crown and Treasury Solicitor, have served notices for the fixing of fair rents, and, pending the hearing of their cases, have offered to pay three-fourths of the rent due on the 29th of September, last, but are being served with writs for the full amount; and, as there is no possibility of the cases of these tenants being decided for some months, 390 will he use his influence with this official of the Irish Government to induce him to stay proceedings until the tenants obtain relief from the Land Court?
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDER SECRETARY (Colonel KING-HARMAN) (Kent, Isle of Thanet)
(who replied) said: I am informed that three writs were served on the 2nd instant on leasehold tenants of Mr. Lane Joynt for the half-year's rent due in September last. These tenants were among eight leasehold tenants on the estate who have applied to have fair rents fixed. They have since settled.
