HC Deb 18 March 1908 vol 186 c587

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will say whether any steps have yet been taken to put in force the compulsory powers of The Evicted Tenants (Ireland) Act, 1907, in County Cavan; how many evicted tenants are to be reinstated, and how many have been reinstated since the Land Act of 1903 in County Cavan; and will he say if County Cavan is receiving exceptional treatment in the working of this Act.


The Estates Commissioners have not yet exercised the compulsory powers of the Evicted Tenants Act, 1907, in any case in County Cavan. Forty-five evicted tenants in that county have already been reinstated or provided with new holdings, and the Commissioners have recorded sixty-one applicants as suitable to receive holdings if such can be provided for them. No exceptional treatment has been given by the Estates Commissioners to County Cavan.
