§ MR. J. F. X. O'BRIEN (Mayo, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, on the estate of Mr. George Moore, of Ballintubber, County Mayo, four caretakers were, on the 8th inst., illegally evicted by the Sheriff on a chairman's decree, without summons or warrant from a magistrate; and, three of the parties having retaken possession, will the police be restrained from interfering in the matter, leaving the landlord to his legal remedy?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I am informed that three, not four, caretakers were evicted on the property referred to. I understand that the evictions were fully carried out in accordance with the law. The persons have gone back into possession, and the agent proposes taking his legal remedy forthwith.
