HC Deb 08 July 1889 vol 337 cc1674-5

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland why the Land Commissioners have not yet fixed the rents of plots of saleable land in the Trim Union; and, whether he is aware that the Provisional Order, authorizing cottages to be built, was issued by the Local Government Board on 30th November, 1887; that it was appealed against, and made absolute in April 1888; that cases were sent to the Land Commissioners, and all questions in reference to them answered in March 1889and that since then nothing has been done?


The Land Commissioners state that the Provisional Order of April, 1888, relates to the third scheme for the erection of labourers' cottages, in the Union of Trim. The rents payable in respect of the plots taken under the two former schemes have been all fixed, and the orders completed. Under the third scheme applications were lodged in 39 cases, in all of which, with three exceptions, the rents were fixed in May last. In two of the remaining cases it is expected that orders will be made immediately. The third case has been adjourned for Amendment.

Forward to
