HC Deb 28 March 1890 vol 343 c163
MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN (Monaghan' N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the lately-contemplated evictions on the Stewart and Swiney Estates in County Donegal have been abandoned in deference to any suggestions made on the part of the Irish Executive; whether like suggestions were made to the agent of the Olphert Estate; and, if so, by whom, and what was his reply; how many families have been evicted on the Olphert Estate during the past week; how many evictions were abandoned and by whoso authority, and for what cause they were abandoned; and whether the Government will propose by their Land Purchase Bill to enable tenants evicted, and more especially tenants evicted in congested districts on the seaboard since the Land Purchase Bill was introduced, to avail themselves of the provisions of the Bill?


I must ask the hon. Member to repeat the question on Monday.
