HC Deb 16 June 1899 vol 72 cc1355-6
MR. J. P. FARRELL (Cavan, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether any complaint has been made to him by tenants in the neighbourhood of Bally- connell and Belturbet, in county Cavan, on the delay in hearing first and second term applications to fix fair rents; when the next Sub-Commission is fixed to sit in Cavan; and whether he will expedite hearings by making representations to the Land Commissioners.


A list containing 215 cases from the Union of Bawnboy, which embraces the electoral division of Ballyconnell, was commenced in December last and completed in the early part of last month. It is probable that a further list for that district will be issued in the course of the next couple of months. A Sub-Commission has been engaged for a considerable time during the past two years in the disposal of cases from the Union of Cavan, within which Belturbet is situate, and sittings will he held at Cavan on the 20th, 21st, and 22nd instant for the hearing of further cases which appear in a list recently issued, and which list contains cases from the locality of Belturbet. Every endeavour is being made to dispose of fair rent cases as rapidly as circumstances will permit.
