§ MR. HAVILAND BURKE (King's County, Tullamore)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Robert Owens, who held an evicted farm on the Somers Estate, near Tullamore, King's County, has stated in a communication sent to him that he has bought this farm from the Estates Commissioners and has already paid his first instalment; and, if so, whether he will consider the advisability of again bringing the matter before the Estates Commissioners.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
The West meath portion only of this estate has 139 been sold to the tenants, but no tenant named Robert Owens is amongst the number. No proceedings in respect of the King's County portion of the estate have come before the Commissioners.
