HC Deb 18 March 1889 vol 334 cc21-2
MR. J. F. X. O'BRIEN (Mayo, S.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether it is a fact that Mr. Henry A. Robinson, J.P., of Roundstone, county Galway, who is agent for Mrs. Hinds, is in the habit of serving on the tenants, year after year, ejectment notices for practically one half year's rent, the other half year being the running gale, which are habitually withdrawn on payment of 10s., solicitor's costs; can he state who Mr. Robinson's solicitor is; whether he is aware that, within the past few days, Mr. Robinson has had a number of tenants served with such notices; and whether there is any way for protecting these tenants from such treatment?


I regret that I am unable to give the hon. Member any information in regard to the matters of fact referred to in the question, the matter being one of which the Government have no cognizance.
