HC Deb 10 December 1908 vol 198 cc727-8

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have received an application from Henry Thompson, who was evicted in 1880 from the lands of Lowry-Bane, near Castlecauldwell, for reinstatement in his holding on these lands, which the Commissioners have given notice to acquire for the purposes of the Evicted Tenants Act, is the farm from which Thompson was evicted untenanted and his former house on it still available; and will the Commissioners favourably consider his application.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The application in question was not received by the Estates Commissioners within the time specified in the Evicted Tenants Act, and cannot therefore be considered in connection with the allotment of the lands of Lowry-Bane, which the Commissioners propose to acquire under that Act, and which are, as they understand, untenanted.
