§ MR. J. DALY (Monaghan)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the cause of the delay in the court valuers not viewing the farms on the estate of Mr. Shirley and other landlords in county Monaghan, where fair rents have been fixed by the Sub-Commissioners almost 12 months ago; and whether he can state if the Chief Land Commissioners will sit at Carrickmacross to hear the appeals referred to, and if he can fix the date of hearing?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The Land Commission have fixed the 21st June next as the date upon which they will commence their sittings in Monaghan for the purpose of hearing fair rent appeals from that county. Two valuers are at present engaged in the inspection of holdings in the district referred to in which appeals are pending, but it is not yet possible to say what cases will be included in the list for hearing on the date mentioned.
