HC Deb 08 July 1907 vol 177 c1170

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland is he aware that for a number of years Mr. Timothy Corbett, of Rathany, Knockany, county Limerick, has been evicted from his farm on the property of the Earl of Limerick; can he say how the Estates Commissioners' inspector, Mr. Coughlan, regarded the application for reinstatement of Mr. Corbett, as the result of his interview with him in Kilmallock on an early day in January last; and will the Estates Commissioners take steps to put Mr. Corbett back into his holding.


The Estates Commissioners have inquired into Mr. Corbett's case, and have ascertained that the hold ing in which he seeks to be reinstated is in the possession of his son-in-law, the husband of his only child, who has purchased it under the Land Purchase Acts. In the circumstances, the Commissioners have decided that they can take no action in the case.
