§ MR. CULLINAN (Tipperary, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that applications have been lodged with the Estates Commissioners from Ellen Brien and John Higgins, two evicted tenants on the Desertmartin, county Derry, portion of the Drapers' Company's estate; whether the greater portion of the estate has been sold under the Ashbourne Act, and negotiations are now in course of progress with the Commissioners for the sale of the remainder; and, if so, will steps be taken to make adequate provision for the evicted tenants.† See (4) Debates, cxxxv., 1496.462 (Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The application of the Drapers' Company in respect of this estate has not yet come before the Commissioners to be dealt with. Applications have been received from the two evicted tenants named and will be considered.
