HC Deb 16 March 1905 vol 143 cc207-8

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Edward Scanlon and his son Michael, of Laccaroe, Tulla, county Clare, applied to the Land Commission, sitting at Ennis in December, 1902, to have a fair rent fixed; that the Scanlons lodged appeals against the rent fixed; whether he can say if this appeal is listed for hearing by the Land Commission about to sit at Ennis on the 21st instant; and, if not, can he say what has become of them; and, if it should be found that their absence from the list is due to any mistake on the part of the Land Commission, will he see that the tenants concerned are not put to any further delay and loss by directing that their appeal shall be heard at the next sitting of the Commission.


Two applications to fix fair rents in respect of portion of the lands of Lecarrow, in which Edmond Scanlan is described as tenant, and Daniel O'Connell as landlord, were received by the Land Commission, and subsequently listed for hearing before a Sub-Commission at Ennis on the 9th December, 1902. Orders were made fixing judicial rents in these cases on the 9th May, 1903. Applications to have these cases reheard do not appear to have been lodged on behalf of either party. The case of Michael Scanlon, tenant, cannot be traced.
