§ MR. VINCENT KENNEDY (Cavan, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland how-many Land Commission appeals are now pending; what is the cause of delay; and is this matter having his attentfon.
I am informed by the Land Commission that the number of appeals outstanding on the 30th November was 8,392. The number outstanding on the 30th November, 1905, was 11,477. A decrease of 3,085 in the number of outstanding appeals has, therefore, taken place within the last twelve months, and the Commissioners inform me that they believe this rate of decrease will be maintained.
§ MR. VINCENT KENNEDY
As this is a matter of extreme urgency cannot the right hon. Gentleman take any steps to deal with it?
I am aware of the urgency of the matter, and I hope to be able to do something to facilitate matters.
