§ Mr. PATRICK O'BRIEN (for Mr. Duffy)
asked what reasons the Estates Commissioners assign for giving a plot of accommodation land to Johanna Hayes, district nurse, Athenry, and refusing to give any accommodation land to Patrick 490 Fox, Church-street, a man with eight in family, and Christy Daly, of Northgate-street, with six in family, whereas Messrs. Daly and Fox purchased their houses and the district nurse has not purchased the house which she occupies?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The allotment referred to was made by the Estates Commissioners in the exercise of their discretion. The hon. Member appears to be under a misapprehension in stating that Fox and Daly have purchased their holdings in the town of Athenry.
