HC Deb 21 April 1890 vol 343 c963
MR. MOLLOY (King's Co., Birr)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that in the Kind's County there are cases entered for hearing by the Land Commission since 1887 which have not been heard; and if he will cause these cases to be heard by the Commission; and, if necessary, appoint further Commissioner to relieve these applicants from the difficulties under which they suffer?


The Land Commissioners report that the matter is as stated in the first paragraph of the question. A Sub-Commission has been sitting continuously in the King's County for upwards of six months, and the Commissioners have made arrangements to send another set of lay Assistant Commissioners into the county, which will be done at the earliest date practicable.


Already these cases are three years in arrear. When is it likely that the sub-Commissioners will visit King's County?


The Land Commissioners say that the duties will be discharged at the earliest practicable opportunity. The arrears I am glad to say are diminishing, and I may remind the House that I was desirous of introducing a Bill dealing with them both last year and the year before.
