HC Deb 11 March 1908 vol 185 cc1501-2
MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY (Limerick, W.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can say whether the Estates Commissioners received a resolution from the Limerick County Council and other public bodies in the county asking them to take steps to reinstate the representatives of Denis Scanlon, deceased, in the farm from which he was evicted at Kilbradern; and what do they intend to do in the matter.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners have received resolutions of the nature referred to. They have inquired into the claim of the representatives of Denis Scanlon, and have decided to take no action in the matter. Scanlon was evicted for the non-payment of a land purchase annuity.
