§ MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Estates Commissioners have in- 270 vestigated the application for reinstatement by Mr. Florence Doherty, an evicted tenant on the John Mahony estate, Beaufort, county Kerry; and can he state what decision has been arrived at.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners have investigated Mr. Doherty's application for reinstatement. The holding from which he was evicted has been purchased under the Land Acts by the tenant in occupation. The Commissioners, however, will further consider Mr. Doherty's case in the event of their purchasing untenanted land in the neighbourhood.
