HC Deb 27 April 1891 vol 352 c1486
MR. J. BARRY (Wexford, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Chief Land Commission has appointed 3rd June next to hear appeals from the decisions of the Sub-Commission for County Wexford; if he is aware that there are upwards of 100 appeals listed from the Poor Law Union of Wexford alone; and whether, considering the enormous expense and inconvenience of bringing the tenants and their witnesses to Dublin, he would suggest to the Land Commission the desirability of hearing these appeals in the Assize town of Wexford?


The Land Com. missioners report that their present arrangement to hear appeals from the County Wexford is as stated in the first paragraph. No cases have yet been listed, the papers being in the hands of the Court Valuer. So soon as the list is formed the Commissioners will carefully consider whether, having regard to their other public engagements and the number and character of the holdings concerned, it would be for the public convenience to have a sitting in Wexford.

Forward to
