§ MR. JOHN MURPHY (Kerry, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if the Estates Commissioners have to up the present taken any practical steps to reinstate the evicted tenants on the Kenmare estate, county Kerry; and if he will point out to the Commissioners that the delay in dealing with the cases of evicted tenants is causing widespread dissatisfaction.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Estate Commissioners understand that, in addition to the reinstatements already effected, Lord Kenmare is about to reinstate practically every evicted tenant whose farm is unoccupied. The Commissioners will endeavour to bring about an arrangement in the cases of the evicted tenants whose holdings are occupied by new tenants.
§ MR. JOHN MURPHY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that Lord Kenmare has left the reinstatement to the Estates Commissioners, who have sent down two inspectors during the past two years, and have done nothing else whatever?
