§ MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that, although applications were lodged with the Estates Commissioners last June for the reinstatement of the six tenants who were evicted from their farms on the M'Gillicuddy Eager Estate, Glencar, County Kerry, no action has yet been taken by the Commissioners; and whether, with a view to bringing about a settlement, they will now use their influence with the owners and agent to secure the reinstatement of these tenants.
§ MR. CHERRY
The six tenants referred to were evicted since the passing of the Irish Land Act, 1903, and their applications were not received by the Estates Commissioners until 9th September last. Their applications do not, therefore, come within the provisions of the Evicted Tenants Act, but will be inquired into when the estate is being dealt with under the Irish Land Act, 1903.
