HC Deb 02 June 1896 vol 41 cc294-5
MR. S. YOUNG (Cavan, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether he will state how many applications to fix fair rent in respect of the second judicial term have been received from county Cavan, also how many tenants in county Cavan are now entitled to apply to have judicial rents fixed for the second term; whether he will consider the desirability of publishing townland or district lists, giving the names, addresses, and particulars as to the area and rent of all tenants now entitled to apply in respect of the second judicial term; and, whether he is aware that this information would enable them to fill up their originating notices with accuracy, and thus tend to the convenience of the Land Commission, and save the farmers the cost of obtaining copies of the judicial orders or agreements?


Applications to fix fair rents for a second statutory term have been received in only three cases from the county Cavan. I am informed that the Land Commissioners have not got the data for the compilation of an accurate statement of the number of tenants in the county who are now in a position to apply to have judicial rents fixed for a second term, and under the circumstances I am afraid it must be left to the applicants themselves to fill up their originating notices.
