HC Deb 26 October 1899 vol 77 cc742-3
MR. T. J. FARRELL (Kerry, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the number of applications made and awaiting hearing in the Cahirciveen Land Commission district to have fair rents fixed; whether originating notices were served on Trinity College representatives as early as April, 1898, and are still unheard; and whether information can be given as to the probable time when the Sub-Land Commission will sit at Cahirciveen to dispose of the applications awaiting trial.


A hundred and thirty-one applications to fix fair rents await hearing from the district mentioned in the first paragraph. In only one of the unlisted cases from the Trinity College Estate was the application to fix a fair rent lodged in April, 1898, while, with the exception of two other cases in which the originating notices were lodged in August and September of that year, the applications in all cases pending from the estate were received during the present year. A list containing cases from this district will be issued when the County Kerry list, now in course of disposal, is completed, but the actual date on which the Sub-commission will sit in Cahirciveen has not yet been fixed.


Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the necessity for appointing more Land Commissioners?

(No answer was given.)
