§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether any application has been made to the Estates Commissioners for the restoration to their homes of eight evicted tenants on the Dopping-Hepenstal Estate in North Longford; whether he is aware that these eight farms are practically derelict, three of them being in the landlords' hands and five let on the eleven months system; and whether, as this is a poor congested district, any steps can be taken for the sale of the estate under the 7th Section of the Land Act of 1903.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
Only one application for reinstatement has been received from this estate. The Estates Commissioners will inquire as to the desirability of issuing a request under Section 7.
§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
How long will it take to arrive at the decision? When may I put the Question again?
