HC Deb 17 April 1905 vol 145 c313
MR. O'DOWD (Sligo, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that John Quinn, an evicted tenant on the estate of Sir Joselyn Gore Booth, situate at Lavagh, near Tubbercurry, county Sligo, has left the question of his reinstatement for settlement to the Estates Commissioners and the agent of the estate, and has signed an agreement to that effect; and that the present occupier, Edward Lang, has signed a similar agreement, both agreements being witnessed by the parish priest, the Rev. B. Quinn; and, if so, whether, seeing that this estate is about to be sold to the tenants under the Act of 1903, an immediate settlement of this case will be brought about.


The Commissioners are prepared to consider any proposed arrangement between the landlord, the evicted tenant, and the present occupier, but the matter in its present stage is not one for the intervention of the Commissioners.
