HC Deb 02 December 1908 vol 197 cc1472-3
MR. F. MEEHAN (Leitrim, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have taken any steps to reinstate Mrs. Anne McHugh, an evicted tenant on the Marsham estate, Killavoggy, County Leitrim, she having signed the necessary agreement for purchase in May last and for the preservation of the plantations, in compliance with the terms of the Commission; and whether, having regard to the fact that the young plantation on the farm was being destroyed, the Commissioners would take immediate action to have her reinstated.


The Estates Commissioners have had the lands inspected and have intimated to the owner the price which they are prepared to advance for the purchase of the evicted farm. It is understood that the owner is about to reinstate Mrs. McHugh, who has agreed to purchase.
