HC Deb 20 August 1889 vol 339 c1751
MR. HAYDEN (Leitrim, S.)

I beg to ask the Solicitor General for Ireland whether the Sub-Land Commission, whilst sitting at Mohill on the 22nd July, received instructions to adjourn, after hearing only half the cases listed for hearing; whether he is aware that many of the cases left unheard have been entered since 1887, and that the rents in some of these cases are 100 per cent over the Poor Law Valuation; and, whether, under these circumstances, he will take steps to have the Sub-Commission return to Mohill, and, by disposing of the remainder of the cases, prevent much hardship?


The Land Commissioners Report that the Assistant Commissioners did not receive the instructions alleged in the first paragraph. They had general instructions to hear a sufficient number of cases to keep them fully occupied on inspection duty up to the 22nd August, on which date their vacation commences. The Commissioners will, in accordance with their usual practice, arrange the next Circuit Lists having regard to the claims of the several applicants.
