HC Deb 16 May 1906 vol 157 cc485-6
MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord- Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the landlord of the Mayberry Estate, near Kenmare, has refused to reinstate the six evicted tenants on the estate, although application has frequently been made; and whether this matter will be considered by the inspectors appointed to deal with the Question of evicted tenants.


I have no information as to whether the owner of the estate referred to has refused to reinstate evicted tenants. The Estates Commissioners, however, inform me that they have received applications for reinstatement from five persons who claim to have been evicted from this estate, and that the cases of those evicted tenants will be duly inquired into.

MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)

Cannot the Estates Commissioners initiate proceedings by sending an inspector to ask the landlord to reinstate these tenants?


They can only proceed where the sale of the estate is actually pending, and where they have been applied to to take action. May I suggest that Questions involving points of practice should be given notice of?
