HC Deb 31 March 1898 vol 55 c1495

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that a large number of tenants in the Omagh Union feel aggrieved because of their inability to have their cases heard owing to the overcrowded condition of business of the Land Courts; and will he take the matter into consideration with a view of having more frequent sittings of the Sub-Commissioners held in Omagh?


A Sub-Commission has been continuously engaged in the disposal of cases from the poor law union of Omagh since 4th January, 1897. Frequent sittings have been held by the Sub-Commission in the district since that date, and the cases listed for hearing are being proceeded with as rapidly as possible.
