§ MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY (Limerick, W.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can now give the particulars of the scheme for the distribution of the Untenanted lands on the Mount Shannon Estate, in the county of Limerick, the names of the evicted tenants who are getting some of these lands, the area, and the annuities they will have to pay, and the number of labourers to whom allotments have been given and the extent of same, and any other particulars pertaining to the scheme.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners are not at present in a position to furnish the information asked for in the Question, nor do they consider that any useful purpose commensurate with the labour involved would be served by publishing such details. Full information of such re-sales to tenants will be given in the monthly Returns of advances made under the Act of 1903, which are periodically presented to Parliament.
