§ MR. J. MACVEAGH (Down, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state what rent is paid by Colonel Irvine, sub-sheriff, and rent collector for the Greer estate, for the use of the Courthouse at Omagh, County Tyrone, as a rent office.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. BIRRELL,) Bristol, N.
I am informed that the under-sheriff for County Tyrone is also agent for the Greer estate. He attends at the estate office, which is near the Court-house, for the collection of rent on the appointed rent days. On other days he is frequently engaged in the sheriff's office in the Court-house, and tenants sometimes call and pay their rents there. The under-sheriff pays no rent for his office in the Court-house.
