§ MR. DALTON (Donegal, W.)
I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland if he can state how many tenants on the estate of Messrs. Twigg and Peebles, parish of Templecrome, barony of Boy-lagh, County Donegal, served originating notices on or before 1st November, 1887, and how many of the cases are yet unheard?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. MADDEN,) Dublin University
The Land Commissioners report that on the estate referred to 152 originating notices were received in their office between the passing of the Land Law Act in 1881 and the 1st November, 1887, and of this number 42 applications, which were received on 31st October, 1887, have not yet been heard. It is not possible, the Commissioners state, to give the exact date upon which a Sub-Commission will sit to hear these cases; but they are using every dispatch to dispose of outstanding cases as rapidly as possible.
