HC Deb 14 April 1904 vol 133 cc189-90

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the fact that Mr. John Robinson, sub-sheriff of county Longford, has offered to sell his farm at Ballinacross, county Longford, through the Estates Commissioners, for the benefit of the evicted tenant, Miss McGweney, who is living in poor circumstances in the neighbourhood, the price to be left to arbitration; and, if so, will he direct the Estates Commissioners to communicate with Mr. Robinson with a view to the acceptance of his offer, and the restoration of the evicted tenant.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) No such offer has yet been received by the Commissioners. If one be made the application of the evicted tenant's representative will be considered.
