§ MR. FETHERSTONHAUGH (Fermanagh, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have received an application from Mrs. Mary Fyffe, of Curran, Ballinamallard, County Fermanagh, to be restored as an evicted tenant; if so, have they put her on the list as a suitable person; and have the Estates Commissioners acquired in County Fermanagh any untenanted land or other land suitable for the restoration of evicted tenants under the Evicted Tenants Act or otherwise.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners have received the application 486 referred to, and have noted it for consideration when allotting untenanted land. The Commissioners have already acquired 140 acres of untenanted land in County Fermanagh, and are negotiating for the purchase of other lands. They have also initiated proceedings for the compulsory purchase of 338 acres in the county under the Evicted Tenants Act
