HC Deb 10 August 1904 vol 140 cc25-6

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can † See (4) Debates, cxxxviii., 274. state or give a Return of the number and names of evicted tenants in county Cavan, and further the number of these tenants who have up to the first day of June last made application to the Estates Commissioners to be reinstated in their former holdings; and what steps are being taken with that object; also the titles of the estates with which these applications are concerned.


The number and names of evicted tenants are not officially recorded. One hundred and thirty-two such tenants in county Cavan have applied for reinstatement and their applications will be duly considered. So far, no opportunity has arisen for reinstating any of them. The names of these tenants, and the titles of the estates from which they have been evicted, will be communicated to the hon. Member.
