HC Deb 28 June 1906 vol 159 c1154
MR. P. A. MCHUGH (Sligo, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland how many applications have been received by the Estates Commissioners from evicted tenants in the counties of Sligo and Leitrim from the 1st November, 1903, to the present time; and how many of these cases have been dealt with by the Commissioners.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they have received 154 applications for reinstatement in county Leitrim, and ninety-two for rein statement in county Sligo, and they have received information that reinstatement has been effected in twenty-four of the cases in county Leitrim and in one case in county Sligo. The Commissioners are having inquiries made into the cases of applicants from these counties as rapidly as possible.
