HC Deb 25 June 1908 vol 191 cc54-5

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the evicted tenants on the Maybery estate, near Kenmare, have not yet been reinstated; can he explain the cause of the delay; and can he state approximately when they will be reinstated.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners made an offer to the owner for the purchase of five evicted holdings on the estate in question, but the owner declined to accept the price offered. The Commissioners have since had a fresh inspection made, and are now considering their inspector's report with a view to further action in the matter.
