HC Deb 06 July 1905 vol 148 c1309
MR. O'SHEE (Waterford, W.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether originating applications have yet been lodged with the Estates Commissioners for the sale by Sir John Nugent Humble and Charles Nugent Humble of their lands in county Waterford, and, if so, when; whether the Estates Commissioners received in April last a joint application from three former tenants, Mrs. Margaret Morrissey, Miss Mary Kiely, and Mrs. Johanna Coleman in reference to these lands; what steps, if any, have been taken with regard to the representations made by these evicted tenants; and whether the matter will receive the immediate attention of the Estates Commissioners, having regard to the nature of the representations made and to the desirability of restoring these tenants to their holdings or other similar holdings on these lands.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) The reply to the first inquiry is in the negative. Applications for reinstatement have been received from the former tenants named, and these will be considered when the estate comes before the Commissioners.
