§ Mr. KILBRIDE
asked whether Thomas Moore, son and representative of James Moore, Monamanry, Luggacurren, an evicted tenant under the Plan of Campaign, whose holding consisted of fifty 259 acres, is still unprovided for; whether his attention has been directed to the fact that it was repeatedly stated in Debate, when the Land Purchase Bill of 1903 was before Parliament, that one of the objects of the Government was to settle the land question where the land war existed; and whether, in view of such expressed intention and Thomas Moore's undoubted claim, the Estates Commissioners will, without delay, take steps to provide Thomas Moore with an equivalent holding?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
I understand that Moore's former holding comprised about forty-three acres at a rent of £22 10s. The Estates Commissioners offered to provide him with a holding of fifty-one acres, subject to a purchase annuity of £23 10s. but he refused to accept their offer, and they decided not to take any further action in his case.
