MR. KENDAL O'BRIEN (Tipperary, Mid.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of, Ireland if he will say when the untenanted lands on the de Montalt estate, County Tipperary will be distributed among the applicants, especially among some local evicted tenants, such as the Dowling (Cappawhite) tenants, who were evicted in 1883.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The lands referred to in the Question have, at the request of the Estates Commissioners, been temporarily let up to the 1st April next, by which date the Commissioners hope to be in a position to take them over. It is proposed to provide for the Dowling evicted tenants upon the disposal of the lands.
