§ Mr. JOHN CAMPBELL (Armagh, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that 22 tenants on the Hamilton Synge Estate, Tullinaval, Co. Armagh, served originating notices in April, 1899; that when their cases came on for hearing in July, 1900, an adjournment was granted at the request of the receiver; that they were again postponed in October, 1900; that Civil Bill ejectments have been served on several of these tenants; that the estate is to be sold under Section 40; and that a Report to the Commission was made nearly 12 months ago; and whether he can state when these cases, now pending for three years, will come on for hearing, when an offer of sale will be made, and what course will be pursued in the case of those tenants on whom ejectments have been served.
§ Mr. WYNDHAM
The Fair Rent applications were adjourned, as stated, pending the proceedings under Section 40 of the Act of 1896. The Report of the Land Commission under that Section was filed in the Land Judge's Court on the 15th January, and will shortly be brought before the Land Judge for consideration. I have no information with respect to the service of ejectment notices.
