HC Deb 17 July 1905 vol 149 c887

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if the Estates Commissioners have received an application for reinstatement from Patrick McConnell, the evicted tenant of a farm in Lisnemaine, county Cavan; whether, as the landlord alleges, the Estates Commissioners are responsible for causing unnecessary delay in reinstating the said tenant; if not, who is; and, further, when will possession likely be given.


Proceedings for the sale of the estate concerned were only instituted in December. The agreements for purchase include one signed by Patrick McConnell. The state will be inspected in order of priority, and in the meantime McConnell's purchase cannot be completed. There has been no unnecessory delay.
