HC Deb 06 December 1906 vol 166 c1191
MR. HALPIN (Clare, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will inquire of the Estates Commissioners what steps they have taken to reinstate the evicted tenants on the Vandeleur Estate in West Clare; whether the Estates Commissioners' inspector and Mr. Vandeleur's agent visited the evicted farms; whether Mr. Vandeleur also sent a valuer to examine the holdings; and will the Estates Commissioners have these evicted tenants reinstated as soon as possible.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they have had an inspection made of all the evicted tenants' holdings on the estate of Mr. H. S. Vandeleur, and have communicated to the owner the estimated price which they are prepared to offer. The owner has expressed his willingness to accept the estimated price, and is taking the steps necessary to bring the estate before the Commissioners, in accordance with the rules and regulations issued by them.
