HC Deb 05 August 1907 vol 179 cc1528-9
MR. DELANY (Queen's County, Ossory)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have been mindful of the claim of Mrs. Delany, the representative of the late John Delany, who was evicted in 1889, by the late John George Adair, from his holding at Roskeen, Cappalough electoral division, Mountmellick Union, Queen's County, for non-payment of two years' rack rent; and can he say, in view of the fact that the planter has not purchased, whether Mrs. Delany is one of the evicted tenants whom the Commissioners propose rein stating in the evicted holding.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners have noted Mrs. Delany's application for consideration in connection with the distribution of such untenanted land as they may acquire, but they have decided to take no action to secure her reinstatement in her late husband's former holding, which is occupied by another tenant.
