HC Deb 15 February 1898 vol 53 c631
MR. J. P. FARRELL (Cavan, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Sub-Commission presided over by Mr. Crcan recently heard a large number of cases on the Fetherstone Estate, in county Longford, and that the decisions have in all cases shown little or no reduction in the rents as compared with the first statutory term: and whether he can call for any report from the legal commissioner to explain the difference between this decision and decisions given showing much larger reductions prior to the appointment of the Fry Commission?


This Question has been referred, in the ordinary way, to the Land Commissioners, and they submit to me, and I agree with them, that they should not be called upon to give any answer to a Question couched in such terms. If any of the parties are aggrieved by the decisions of the Sub-Commission, they have the right to have their cases reheard before the Land Commissioners?
