§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND (Clare, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland how many evicted tenants have been provided with holdings up to date in County Clare; how many cases are under consideration in the same county; and whether anything will be done to hasten on this work.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners inform me that ninety-eight evicted tenants in County Clare have been reinstated in their former holdings or provided with other holdings; forty-nine other applicants have been noted as suitable, and will be provided with farms as soon as practicable; and 113 other applications await consideration.
§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND
Will the right hon. Gentleman kindly impress on the Estates Commissioners the fact that the general peace depends in great measure on the settlement of this question, for which we have waited so long?
