HC Deb 12 March 1908 vol 185 cc1712-3

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will say whether special instructions have been issued to the inspectors dealing with evicted tenants in County Cavan to secure the payment of arrears due at the time of eviction as a condition of reinstatement by the evicted tenants or his representative; and will he say whether any steps have been taken in County Cavan to put The Evicted Tenants (Ireland) Act, 1907, into force, and in how many cases.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that no such special instructions as are referred to in the Question have been issued to inspectors, and that the compulsory provisions of the Evicted Tenants Act of 1907 have not been put in force in any case in County Cavan up to the present.
