HC Deb 04 August 1904 vol 139 cc991-2
MR. HAVILAND BURKE (King's County, Tullamore)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners will delay their sanction of the agreements for sale on the Fox Estate, Ballymacrossin, King's county, pending the settlement of the claims of an evicted tenant, Miss Maria Masterson, particulars of whose case have already been lodged with the Commissioners; whether he will use any influence within his power against any advance being sanctioned in the case of the tenant Langford, now in possession of Miss Maria Masterson's farm, until provision is made for her as an evicted tenant; and whether he can communicate the result of the recent inspection of the estate of Major Fox, and state whether the inspector's report contains any suggestion for the reinstatement of Miss Masterson or the acquisition of any holding for her elsewhere.


I have nothing to add to my reply to the similar Question by the hon. Member for Queen' County of the 18th July.†
