HC Deb 28 February 1906 vol 152 cc1145-6
MR. FLYNN (Cork N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have received any recent information in respect to the Newman Estate, Dromore, Mallow, County Cork, and the tenant, Timothy C. O'Callaghan, who was excluded from the operation of the purchase scheme, though an ordinary tenant willing to purchase on the same terms as other tenants; are the Commissioners aware that this tenant has since been evicted, and he and his son imprisoned for one month in connection with the eviction proceedings; and, under these circumstances, and having regard to the fact that the holding is vacant, will the Commissioners take steps to provide for the purchase of the farm and the reinstatement of the evicted tenant.


I understand that the facts are as stated in the second paragraph of the Question. The Estates Commissioners inform me that it has only now come to their knowledge that an eviction has taken place in this case, and that they will make further inquiries into the matter.
