§ MR. THOMAS O'DONNELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland how many applications for reinstatement by evicted tenants in county Kerry have been inquired into by the inspector of the Estates Commission; how many tenants have been reinstated; and whether, in counties such as Kerry where there is comparatively little untenanted land, 47 steps will be taken to secure that evicted tenants shall not be asked to migrate, but in every case each to get back his old homestead.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The number of applications inquired into in county Kerry is 415, and the number of evicted tenants reinstated up to 4th instant is 80. The Estates Commissioners endeavour to secure the reinstatement of an evicted tenant in his former holding whenever possible.
