§ MR. WILLIAM ABRAHAM (Cork County, N.E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state whether any application has yet been made to the Estates Commissioners to declare a section of the Kingston Estate to be a separate estate, the tenants on such portion having been induced to sign agreements for purchase; whether he is aware that processes for payment of a year's rent have been issued against other tenants who, finding themselves unable to accept the landlord's terms, have refused to sign agreements; and if the Estates Commissioners will investigate the circumstances of the tenants on this estate, before creating any section of it a separate estate, or sanctioning advances for purchase of holdings on a portion of it.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
No application has been received by the Commissioners in reference to any portion of this estate. If made all the circumstances will be considered.
