HC Deb 10 February 1898 vol 53 cc231-2
MR. HAYDEN (Roscommon, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that none of the land cases for which notices were served after 8th January, 1897, for the Mullingar district of county Westmeath have been heard; and, if so, why the Land Commission have appointed no sitting for that district during the last 10 months; and how many cases are still unheard; and, will he use his influence to expedite the hearing of those cases?


A Sub-Commission was employed in the Mullingar Union up to August last. A new list of cases will be issued for this Union in the course of a few days, the hearing of which will commence on the 7th of March. The number of unheard cases in the Union is, I am informed, comparatively very few.
