§ MR. M'GOVERN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the cause of the delay in issuing land certificates to tenants who have purchased their holdings through the Irish Land Commission; and, have some of these certificates, that were ordered and paid for by tenants in the county Cavan so far back as the first week in February, not been yet delivered; how many clerks are employed by the Land Commission, the central office of Local Registration Office; and how many of them are junior clerks.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
Fourteen applications for certificates were lodged from Cavan in February; twelve certificates have been issued, and in the remaining two cases the delay is due solely to the fact that the tenants failed to give sufficient information. Particulars as to the clerical staff of the Departments mentioned will be found in the printed Estimates.
