HC Deb 26 April 1904 vol 133 c1187
MR. LEAMY (Kildare, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that a number of originating applications and requests are lying in the office of the Estates Commissioners unexamined and not formally received owing to the insufficient staff; and whether steps will be taken to secure that they shall be examined and formally received on the day on which they are brought in, as was always done in the Land Judge's Court and formerly in the Land Commission.


There has been some little delay in dealing with such applications. But such delay is unavoidable and incidental to the working of a Department so recently constituted. The question of the sufficiency of the staff is at present under consideration.
