HC Deb 02 August 1905 vol 150 cc1338-9
MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state whether, with a view to securing the immediate clearing out of a large batch of unheard cases and appeals in the county Longford, under the Land Law (Ireland) Act, he will direct that future sittings of the Sub-Commissions will be held at periods of not less than six months, and of the Appeal Commission not less than one year.


Four Sub-Commission sittings for Longford have been held within the past twelve months, and another will be held in September. An appeal sitting was held in May last. There are only nineteen appeals now † See page 1164. pending from this county, and the Commissioners can give no undertaking as to the date of the next sitting.
