HC Deb 17 June 1889 vol 337 cc11-2
MR. BIGGAR (Cavan, W.)

I beg to ask the Solicitor General for Ireland whether there are eighty land cases unheard by the Commissioners on the Monaghan Estate of E. P. Shirley, esquire, the originating notices for which were served in or before the month of March, 1887; whether in sixty of these cases the tenants are caretakers pending the six months for redemption; and, whether a special supplemental list will be supplied and a special sitting will be granted before the time for redemption expires, in order to save said tenants (most of whom were put off for administration) from eviction, and give them the benefits of the Land Acts?


The Land Commissioners state that all outstanding originating notices from tenants on the Shirley Estate received at their office up to the 4th of May, 1887, are on the present list for Carrickmacross, and the hearing of these cases is nearly completed. A new list is being prepared containing all originating notices from the Shirley Estate received since the 4th of May, 1887. The hearing of the cases on this list will be commenced when the cases on the present list have been disposed: of.
