§ MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can say whether the Estates Commissioners have yet sent an inspector to the county of Limerick to inquire into the cases of evicted tenants there; and, if they have not, will he explain the cause of delay.
The Estates Commissioners inform me that the inspector appointed to inquire into and report on the applications of evicted tenants from the counties Clare and Limerick is at present engaged on the Clare cases. He will in due course take up his enquiries into the Limerick cases. There are only a limited number of inspectors, and it has been necessary to allot more than one county to each.
