HC Deb 16 December 1908 vol 198 cc1841-2
MR. J. MACVEAGH (Down, S.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have received an application from Edward M'Barron, of Agha-derryloman, County Fermanagh, to be restored as an evicted tenant; if so, whether his name has been entered on the list of suitable persons; and, if not, for what reason.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners have decided, after due inquiry, not to take any action on M'Barron's application for reinstatement nor to provide him with land in addition to that which he now holds. It would be contrary to practice to state the reasons which actuate the Commissioners in the exercise of the discretion vested in them.
