HC Deb 02 May 1904 vol 134 c122
MR. FFRENCH (Wexford, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Rowe Estate has been in the Land Judge's Court over thirty years, and that the rental was settled twenty-five years ago, and that the solicitors having carriage did nothing about having a sale until the tenants applied a week ago; whether, seeing that the rental settled twenty-five years ago has had no effect, the Government will take steps to abolish this Court pursuant to the decision of this House: and when will a Bill be introduced for that purpose.


This Question was referred to the Land Judge's Court on Saturday, but so far I have not received a report on it. Perhaps the hon. Member will be good enough to repeat the Question to-morrow. The reply to the concluding portion is in the negative.


put a supplementary Question as to the advisability of appointing another Judge to assist the Land Judge.

[The answer was inaudible.]
