HC Deb 31 March 1908 vol 187 cc328-9

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Mr. Lyster has refused the price offered him by the Estates Commissioners for his untenanted land at Cappagh and Monea, near Borris-in-Ossory, Queen's County; and can he say whether the Commissioners propose putting the compulsory provisions of the Evicted Tenants Act into operation on this estate for the purpose of reinstating William Phelan, an evicted tenant, in view of the fact that those farms have remained untenanted ever since the eviction some twenty years ago.


Mr. Lyster has refused the Estates Commissioners' estimated price for the untenanted land in question. The case of William Phelan is at present in the hands of an inspector, upon the receipt of whose report the Commissioners will consider what action they should take in the case.
