HC Deb 02 December 1908 vol 197 cc1440-1
MR. MCHUGH (Sligo, N.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what is the number of evicted tenants in the county of Sligo; how many of these are in occupation as caretakers; and how many evicted tenants in this country were reinstated or given new holdings during the live years ended the 1st November, 1908.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.): I am not in a position to say how many evicted tenants there are in County Sligo or how many of them are in occupation as caretakers. The Estates Commissioners inform me that of the persons who applied to them for reinstatement, as evicted tenants or the representatives of evicted tenants, thirteen have been reinstated or provided with other holdings, and the cases of twenty-eight others have been noted for consideration in connection with the allotment of untenanted land.
