HC Deb 08 June 1899 vol 72 c647

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that in those cases where landlords and tenants agree to fix fair rents on the report of two Court valuators there is great delay in securing the valuation; that in many instances four months will elapse after applying to the Land Commission before there is a response; and whether there is any reason for this delay.


There has been some delay in referring a number of the applications mentioned to the court valuers for inspection, but the delay has been unavoidable owing to the work in other districts in appeal cases, and it is expected that all such applications will have been referred to the valuers before the end of July.
