HC Deb 24 February 1904 vol 130 c853
MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY (Limerick, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, having regard to the difficulty of landlords and evicted tenants agreeing upon the future rent of the holdings from which the tenants were evicted, and the consequent delay in the reinstatement of such tenants, and further, having regard to the fact that in many cases the evicted tenants cannot be provided for until a sale of the estate on which the evicted lands are situate takes place, he will introduce a clause in the amending Land Bill providing for their more speedy reinstatement and settlement.


Such difficulties, in so far as they exist, have been surmounted on the Coolgreany Estate, and I have no reason to believe that they will prove intractable elsewhere. I am not prepared to depart from the provisions embodied in the Act of last year by consent, after full debate.


Will the right hon. Gentleman make an effort to bring about the reinstatement In county Kerry of evicted tenants on estates which are not at present for sale, and where the holdings are still vacant?

[No answer was returned].
