§ MR. VINCENT KENNEDY
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will state how many inspectors have visited county Cavan from the Estates and Land Commission with a view of bringing about the restoration of the evicted tenants in that county; how many cases have been dealt with for the six months ending 30th June 1900; how many evicted tenants have been restored to their old homes and how many have been supplied with new farms; and can he say in how many cases the evicted farms are on the landlords' hands.
The Estates Commissioners inform me that two of their inspectors have visited county Cavan for the purpose of making inquiries as to evicted tenants. Twenty-two applications have been referred to these inspectors for inquiry within the last six months, and are being dealt with by them. The Commissioners have received information that nineteen evicted tenants have been reinstated in this county since the passing of the Act; eighteen of those appear to 1354 have been restored to their former holdings and one placed, in another holding. According to the applications which have been received, fifty-two evicted holdings in this county are in the landlords' hands.
