HC Deb 30 November 1908 vol 197 cc1048-9
MR. FFRENCH (Wexford, S.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Sigginshaggard evicted tenants belonging to the Carew estate, who were evicted about 1886, have not yet been restored to their homes, although the estate was sold some time ago; and whether, as neither landlord nor anybody else objects to their restoration, he can say what is the cause of the delay.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) This estate has not yet been sold to the Estates Commissioners, but the owner informed the Commissioners on the 12th instant that he was prepared to accept the prices estimated by them for the evicted farms. The evicted tenants will, it is hoped, be reinstated at an early date.
