HC Deb 30 March 1905 vol 143 cc1707-8

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have received any communication from the evicted tenants on the Coyne Estate, Belmullet Union, county Mayo, †See page 1182. on the subject of their reinstatement on the purchase of the estate; and whether the Commissioners have taken any steps to ascertain if the landlord is willing to sell; if not, whether they propose to do so in order that these evicted tenants may be restored to their former holdings or to new and enlarged holdings.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) The Commissioners do not propose to take any special steps with respect to this estate, which has not yet been brought before them for sale, but the applications of the evicted tenants will not be lost sight of, and will be duly considered when a suitable opportunity presents itself.
