HC Deb 11 May 1888 vol 326 c35
MR. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether an application was made to the Sub-Commission Court (Messrs. Edward Greer, O'Callaghan, and Sproule) sitting at Downpatrick on Friday the 4th instant, that a case in which an hon. Member was coming over from London to give evidence in might be fixed for Tuesday the 8th instant was refused; whether the case was fixed for Saturday positively; whether, on Saturday, the hon. Member being in Court, having been summoned by telegraph, the Sub-Commissioners refused to take the case on that day, and postponed it until Tuesday; and, whether the action of the Sub-Commissioners can be justified on grounds of public convenience; and, if so, what were those grounds?


, in reply, said, the Land Commissioners had not yet been able to give him the information he had asked for. He imagined they found that local reference was necessary.
