§ MR. LALOR (Queen's Co., Leix)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will state the number of cases of appeals from the fair rents fixed by the Sub-Commission for Queen's County that were disposed of by the Chief Commission at its recent sitting; and in how many cases were the rents fixed by the 1645 Sub-Commissions reduced, confirmed, and increased respectively?
