§ MR. KILBRIDE (Kildare, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the tenants on the estates of Mr. Bruce Pryce and Lord Go ugh have served originating notices to have fair rents fixed by the County Court Judge of Kildare, which in the ordinary course would be heard at the April quarter sessions, and that these landlords have moved to have the cases transferred for hearing to the Land Commission; and, if so, can he say what delay, if any, this procedure will involve in the decision of these cases, and whether it is possible to have them listed for hearing before the next sitting of the Sub-Commission for Athy Union.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
It will not be possible to include these cases in the list already issued, which will be heard in May next, unless a special Order of the Court to that effect is obtained. Application for such an Order may be made to the Judicial Commissioner sitting at the Fourt Courts. Any delay in the hearing of the cases will not, however, be prejudicial to the parties, as the judicial rents, when fixed, will run from the gale day next following the date of the lodgment of the applications in the office of the Clerk of the Peace.
