§ MR. DILLON(for Mr. M'CARTAN) (Down, S.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether Mr. O'Callaghan, who is one of the Sub-Commissioners appointed for the County of Down, is a landlord whose rents were largely reduced by the Land Commission.
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDER SECRETARY (Colonel KING-HARMAN) (Kent, Isle of Thanet)
(who replied) said: Having regard to the pretty general reduction of rents in Ireland, I do not think it at all improbable that Mr. O'Callaghan may have had reductions made in any rent which may be payable to him. The Land Commissioners, however, inform me that they do not consider that they are called upon to investigate his private affairs-They are perfectly satisfied with his qualifications, and the manner in which he discharges his duties as an Assistant-Commissioner.
