§ MR. JOHN ROCHE (Galway, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the 1113 Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the number of evicted tenants at present upon the Clanricarde Estate; Also the number reinstated since 1903; and what steps, if any, the Government propose to take towards the reinstatement of those who are still homeless.
The Estates Commissioners have received 129 applications for reinstatement from evicted tenants on this estate, and three of these have been allotted farms on a neighbouring estate. As regards the remaining cases, the Commissioners intend to proceed in accordance with the Regulations recently issued.
§ MR. JOHN ROCHE
Can the right hon. Gentleman hold out no hope that these tenants will be reinstated?
