§ MR. HALPIN (Clare, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will press upon the Estates Commissioners the necessity of reinstating the evicted tenants of West Clare before next autumn, in order to give them an opportunity of being able to prepare their land for the spring tillage.
The Estates Commissioners inform me that they intend to make inquiries into the cases of evicted tenants in County Clare as soon as possible.
§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND (Clare, E.)
Will the right hon. Gentleman be good enough to recognise the extreme urgency of this question, as only ten out of some hundreds of evicted tenants have so far been restored to their holdings.
I am sure the Commissioners are fully alive to the urgency of the matter and will act as quickly as possible.
