§ MR. POWER (Waterford, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the fact that application has been made to the Estates Commissioners for the sale of the estate of Mr. John G. Beresford, Woodhouse, Stradbally, county Waterford, and for the reinstatement by George Crowley, Catherine Barry, Garrett Barry, and other tenants evicted from this estate, he can say whether the Estates Commissioners expect to be able to bring about the reinstatement of these tenants in their former holdings or procure other farms for them.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
No proceedings are pending before the Commissioners in respect to this estate. Any applications made by the evicted tenants will be duly considered.
§ MR. POWER
