HC Deb 27 February 1900 vol 79 c1223

I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General for Ireland whether he is aware that in consequence of the refusal of the Land Commissioners to sit in Longford for the hearing of 176 County Longford cases, a number of people will be put to the trouble and expense of going to Mullingar, a county town of another county, thirty miles distant from Longford; and whether he can sec his way to making a representation to the Chief Commissioner, with a view to the venue being changed.


I have already informed the hon. Member, in answer to a similar question, that the Land Commissioners state they duly considered all the circumstances of these cases, and have fixed the place of sitting to suit the general convenience of the suitors.
