HC Deb 04 December 1906 vol 166 cc765-6
MR. HALPIN (Clare W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, whether the appeals of nine tenants on the Vandeleur estate at Kilrush, in the county of Clare, were heard at Ennis on the 12th June, 1906; whether four of these appeals have been fixed by Judge Fitzgerald, and the other five are yet undecided; and if he will have inquiries made as to the reason of the appeals not having been fixed.


I am informed by the Land Commission that in the cases of the five undecided appeals referred to in the Question, the holdings are either wholly or partly within the urban district of Kilrush, and some delay has occurred in ascertaining the amounts of the urban rates payable in respect of these holdings. This information has now been obtained, and judgment in the cases will be given in the course of a few days.
