§ MR. LUNDON (Limerick, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, can he say whether the Estates Commissioners have sent an† See page 880.1170 inspector to examine the claims of Thomas Drew for reinstatement in his holding at Ardshanbally, Adare, county Limerick, from which he was evicted in last September by the Earl of Dunraven; if so, what was the nature of the inspector's report; and will Mr. Drew be soon restored to his holding.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners have inquired into this case and have decided that they can take no action in it. The applicant was evicted in September, 1906, that is, more than three years after the passing of the Act of 1903, and in any event the holding is not one to which the Act applies.
