§ MR. MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland how many tenants on the Olphert Estate, in the County of Donegal, who applied to 1622 the Land Commission before the 1st of November, 1887, to fix the fair rent of their holdings have subsequently accepted judicial leases at a rent agreed upon by landlord and tenant without adjudication by the Land Commission; and do the agreements so entered into between landlords and tenants on this estate out of Court owe, in many cases, their origin to the delay of the Land Commission in hearing applications to have fair rents fixed?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. MADDEN, Dublin University)
From the Report received from the Land Commission it appears that there were no cases of the nature indicated in the first paragraph of this question. No agreement or consent fixing a fair rent for any holding on the Olphert estate, in the County of Donegal, has been lodged with the Commission since November 1st, 1887.
