§ MR. KENDAL O'BRIEN (Tipperary, Mid.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether at a recent sitting of the Sub-Land Commission at Roscrea, before Commissioners Tuckey and Baggot, the rents were raised in any eases on the estate of Miss Cecilia Griffiths; if so, will he give the names of the tenant or tenants, and state the amounts by which rents were increased over the valuation put upon the holdings by the landlord's valuer; and will he say whether any tenant has appealed against the decision of the Sub-Land Commission; and, if so, who, and on what grounds.
The Land Commission inform me that at the sitting of the Sub-Commission Court referred to rents were judicially fixed on the estate mentioned in the case of four tenants only. Appeals at the instance of both landlord and tenants are pending in all four cases. I have no further information in the matter.
