§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether any steps are being taken to provide untenanted lands in county Longford for the benefit of the evicted tenants there, eighty-six of whose applications are on file with the Estates Commissioners; and, if so, will he indicate the nature of the steps being taken to provide homes for these people under the Act of 1903.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
Proceedings for the purchase of two estates are at present pending before the Commissioners. In the event of any untenanted lands being distributed in the county, the claims of evicted tenants will be considered.
