HC Deb 02 July 1902 vol 110 cc535-6
MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the final notice for eviction has been served upon a certain number of the De Freyne tenants; and if he can take any steps to arrange a settlement on the terms suggested by more than one of the Roman Catholic clergy, before a step is j taken which, whilst working great hardship, will also embitter feeling.


Evictions are impending on the estate of Lord De Freyne. It is not in my power to intervene in the manner suggested in the question. Even if it were, I could not anticipate that my offices would succeed if those of the Clergy should most unfortunately fail.


I beg to give notice that I shall call attention to this matter later on.
