HC Deb 28 March 1890 vol 343 c160

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland how soon will the Land Sub-Commissioners sit again at Nenagh, County Tipperary, no Sub-Commission having been held for the Unions of Nenagh, Borrisokane, and portion of the Roscrea Union connected with Tipperary, since the month of November, 1888; and whether, having regard to this fact, and considering the position of the tenants in these districts, in many of whose cases notices have been served for nearly three years, the tenants being still obliged to pay the old rents, and that in several hundreds of cases under the Land Act of 1887 notices have been lodged for more than two years, in which cases the tenants would be entitled to be refunded by the landlords the difference in the sums paid by them since the passing of the Act, and the amounts of the judicial rents when fixed, he will facilitate the holding of the Commission in these districts at an early data?


The Land Commissioners report that a Sub-Commission sat to hear cases from the district named during the months of January and February, 1889. All originating notices received before 31st October, 1887, were disposed of at that sitting. The Commissioners have arranged for a Sub-Commission to sit for this district at an early date.
