HC Deb 26 March 1900 vol 81 cc330-1
MR. J. P. FARRELL (Cavan, W.)

I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General for Ire- land whether he is aware that six tenants, who made applications to purchase their holdings on the Annaly (Rathclure) Estate, were induced by the receiver to sign agreements to have their fair rents fixed by the land valuers; and why it is that their holdings have neither been visited nor their rents so fixed, and will he cause inquiry to be made as to the cause of the delay.


I understand that a number of tenants from this estate agreed to refer their cases to court valuers to report as to the fair rents of the holdings, that the holdings were duly inspected, and that the rents have long since been fixed in these cases. There are no other cases of this nature, so I am told, at present pending on the estate. If the hon. Member will supply me with the names of the six tenants referred to in the question, together with the names of the town lands upon which their holdings are situate, I will call for a further report in the matter.
