HC Deb 10 June 1903 vol 123 cc452-3

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland is he aware that in cases throughout East Tyrone where judicial fixings were made out of Court, the agreement was not forwarded by the officials of the Land Office to be filed by the Land Commission; and, if so, whether he will take steps to have the judicial period determined, in the absence of such agreements, by the evidence of the rent reduction as shown by the rent receipts. † See page 220.


Section 8 (6) of the Land Law Act, 1881, and the Rules thereunder, provide that all such agreements shall be lodged with and filed by the Clerk of the Peace or the Land Commission. Agreements filed with the Clerk of the Peace are good even though copies may not have been forwarded to the Land Commission.
