§ MR. S. YOUNG (Cavan, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland—(1) whether he will state the number of recorded cases from county Cavan under the Land Law (Ireland) Act, 1881; (2) whether the tenants in these cases are now entitled by the efflux of time to make application to have their rents fixed for the second judicial term; and (3) whether he can mention the earliest date at which these tenants can have their cases heard, and at the same time avail themselves of the advantages, if any, of the proposed Land Bill?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
In the county of Cavan there were 527 cases in which the applications to have fair rents fixed were recorded in the manner provided by the 60th Section of the Land Act of 1881. Tenants who had judicial rents fixed in such cases would, in the ordinary course, be now entitled to apply to have a fair rent fixed for a second statutory term. I am not in a position to reply to the last paragraph; but I may observe that, as a matter of fact, no applications to have fair rents fixed for a second statutory term have been received by the Land Commissioners from the county Cavan.
MR. T. M. HEALY
Is it a fact that, with regard to certain districts, there are no applications actually before the Court?
