§ CAPTAIN DONELAN
On behalf of the hon. Member for West Cavan, I beg to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he can state the number of notices under the seventh section of the Land Act 1887, served in county Cavan during the year 1896, and the number served from January 1 to May 1, 1897; and whether he can state the number of persons actually dispossessed during the same period?

The number of notices referred to, served in County Cavan in 1896 was 220, and in the first four months of 1897, 78. There were 12 tenants and one sub-tenant actually dispossessed after' service of ejectment notices under the seventh section, in 1896, and eight tenants dispossessed under the same section in the first four months of thin year.
