HC Deb 11 February 1908 vol 183 cc1517-8
MR. WILLIAM ABRAHAM (Cork County, N. E.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state what steps have been or are being taken by the Estates Commissioners to effect the reinstatement of Mrs. Mary Eagan in her former holding at Cahirduggan, on the Nason estate, county Cork, having regard to the fact that the farm is in the landlord's possession and derelict.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners have communicated to the owner the price which they are prepared to give for Mrs. Eagan's former holding, and the landlord has signified his willingness to accept that price. The matter now awaits the institution of formal proceedings for sale by the owner.
