HC Deb 08 June 1899 vol 72 c647
MP. YOUNG (Cavan, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the judgments in two sittings of the Sub-Commissioners held in Bailieborough, county Cavan, 7th and 8th March and 10th May, have not yet been communicated to the tenants; whether he is aware that this delay is disapppointing to many of those who are offered and desire to purchase their holdings under the Land Act; and whether he can say at what time the decision of the Land Commission will be made known.


Judgments have been delivered in a few of the cases heard at Bailieborough on the 7th and 8th March last. It is expected, however, that the decisions will be announced on the 24th instant in the remaining cases, as well as in a large number of the cases subsequently heard on the 10th ultimo at the same place. The inspection and office work necessary to complete these cases is being proceeded with as rapidly as possible. The Commissioners have no information on the subject referred to in the second paragraph of the question.
