HC Deb 19 November 1908 vol 196 c1429

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Irish Land Commission has received an application for reinstatement from Mr. John M'Sweeney, an evicted tenant on the Fitzpatrick estate, at Rvlane, Coachford, county Cork; and will he state whether it is the intention of this body to accept the offer of the evicted tenant, and immediately to reinstate him at an annuity which the holding can afford to bear.


I understand that Mr. John M'Sweeney referred to in the Question is not an evicted tenant, but was ejected for non-payment of the purchase annuity due in respect of an advance of £647 made to him in 1902. The Land Commission cannot reinstate him unless what is due for debt and expenses is paid.
