§ MR. MURPHY
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the number of future tenants in the parish of Ballymacelligot, county Kerry, and the request made at recent public meetings to afford them some relief from the payment of their present rents; and whether he proposes to take steps, by legislation or otherwise, to deal with such cases.
The Land Commission have no information as to the number of future tenants in Ballymacelligot or elsewhere. As regards possible legislation, I would refer to my Answer to the similar Question of the hon. Member for North Westmeath on 11th instant.†
