HC Deb 06 July 1904 vol 137 cc794-5

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have received an application for reinstatement in his farm from Daniel Murphy, Dromin, Milltown, county Kerry; whether he is aware that the greater part of the estate (A. Blennerhassett's Estate) on which the farm is situated is already purchased; that the present holder of the farm (Mr. Wharton) has no judicial title; and, if so, whether steps will be taken, under the provisions of the Land Act, 1903, to have Mr. Murphy reinstated.


The greater part of this property was sold some time ago to the occupiers under previous Land Purchase Acts. No application has been received by the Estates Commissioners in respect of the sale of the remainder, nor have they received any application on behalf of the reinstatement of Daniel Murphy.
