HC Deb 05 June 1907 vol 175 cc653-4

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if the Estates Commissioners have received an application for reinstatement from Mrs. Bridget Craemar, Kiltynashinagh, Ballinamore, an evicted tenant on the Marsham estate, in county Leitrim; and, if so, will the same be investigated by an inspector.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners have inquired into this application, and have ascertained that the eviction took place in consequence of a dispute regarding the tenancy among members of the evicted tenant's family. The Commissioners have not succeeded in settling this dispute, and have, therefore, decided to postpone the further consideration of the application until they are dealing with the estate upon which the evicted farm is situate.
