§ MR. O'DOWD
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether a memorial praying for the reinstatement of Pat Breheny, junior, of Annaghcarty, Riverstown, County Sligo, an evicted tenanted on the Brinkley estate, was received by the Estates Commissioners in February last; whether an inspector visited this evicted farm in June last and reported; and, if so, whether he can state the nature of this official's report.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners have received an application from this man for reinstatement, and have informed him that his name is noted for consideration in connection with the allotment of such untenanted land as they may acquire. His former holding is in the occupation of another tenant. The Reports made to the Commissioners by their inspectors are confidential, and their contents cannot be disclosed.
