§ MR. FLAVIN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that tenants' applications from Ballymacelligot and Castleisland districts to have judicial rents fixed have been lodged since March 1898, and whether, owing to the great delay that has been frequently caused in the hearing of fair rent applications, some representations will be made to the Land Commission to have more frequent sittings of that body.
§ MR. G. W. BALFOUR
I understand the fact is as stated in the first paragraph. A sub-Commission sat in Tralee in October last for the hearing of cases from the districts mentioned, and a further sitting will be arranged for by the Land Commissioners at as early a date as possible.
