§ MR. TUITE (Westmeath, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord, Lieutenant of Ireland, with reference to the fair rent appeals from County Meath not yet disposed of, whether he will state how many of these appeals were served on the Land Commission in the year 1888, and on what date the first of the originating notices out of which these appeals arise was served on the Land Commission?
§ MR. MADDEN
The Irish Land Commissioners report that there are 26 appeals from fair rent decisions in County Meath awaiting hearing, which were received by the Commission in 1888. The earliest originating notice in these cases was lodged on September 20, 1887.
