HC Deb 24 April 1907 vol 173 cc22-3
MR. DOLAN (Leitrim, N.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that an appeal has been lodged against the judicial rent fixed on the holding of Mrs. Dolan, Carrickcrevagh, tenant on the Tottenham estate, county Leitrim, although Mrs. Dolan has signed a purchase agreement and paid interest on the purchase money agreed on, and although about twenty years have elapsed since the judicial rent was fixed, and what action does the Land Commission purpose taking with regard to this appeal.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell) The Land Commission inform me that the appeal referred to was twice listed for hearing, but owing to the death of the tenant the case was adjourned. Recently the case appeared in the list for the third time, but as it was stated that proceedings for purchase were pending the court made an order striking the case out of the list of pending appeals, with liberty to re-enter if the purchase should not be carried out.
