§ MR. DALY (Monaghan, S.)
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General for Ireland whether he is aware that hundreds of applications from tenants in the county of Louth to have fair rents fixed have been pending for over twelve months; and whether he can state when these cases will be disposed of by the sub-commissioners.
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. ATKINSON,) Londonderry, S.
A list containing 192 cases from the County Louth is at present in course of disposal. The hearing of these cases was commenced at Drogheda on the 12th instant. The list contains all cases in which the applications were received in the office of the Land Commission prior to 1st April, 1899. Two hundred and fifty-eight additional applications which have been received from the County Louth since the latter date will be listed for hearing in due course.
