HC Deb 04 August 1904 vol 139 c992

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the evicted tenants and their representatives upon the Lansdowne Estate, Queen's county, have applied to the Estates Commissioners asking to be reinstated in their holdings, and in view of the area of the evicted farms untenanted upon this estate, he will state what course the Estates Commissioners propose taking in this matter.


Applications have been received from forty - one evicted tenants on this estate. The Commissioners understand that the owner is considering the question of selling to them his Queen's county estate. Should he propose to do so, the Commissioners will carefully consider the applications of the evicted tenants.
