HC Deb 17 July 1890 vol 347 c98
MR. W. REDMOND (Fermanagh, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will explain why the Land Commission is to hear the Irvinestown cases in Enniskillen, instead of at Irvinestown, in view of the great inconvenience which the change will cause to the farmers of Irvinestown, who will have to travel 18 miles to Enniskillen in order to have their rents fixed?


The Land Commissioners state that the Chairman of the Sub-Commission referred to reports that, at the request of the solicitors for the landlords and tenants, the Sub-Commission arranged to take up such Irvinestown cases as could be conveniently heard at Enniskillen in that town, onthe22nd, 23rd, and 24thinstants, provided both sides agreed to appear there on these days, and with regard to any such cases which could not be conveniently heard at Enniskillen the Sub Commission announced their intention of taking them up on some later day at such place as the hearing could be more conveniently held.
