HC Deb 14 July 1908 vol 192 cc615-6

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can say whether John M'Grath and the representatives of Thomas Barry have as yet been reinstated in their evicted farms on the Cooper property, near Knocklong, County Limerick; has the agent, Mr. Sanders, declined the offer and terms of the Estates Commissioners; and will the Estates Commissioners use the compulsory powers in the Evicted Tenants Act to put M'Grath and Barry back into their evicted lands.


The evicted farms in these cases are in the occupation of a tenant, and, in the opinion of the Estates Commissioners, the Evicted Tenants Act is not applicable. The Commissioners have noted the applications for consideration in connection with the allotment of any untenanted land which they may acquire in the district.
