§ Mr. GUINEY
asked the Chief Secretary what was the date and year when the Estates Commissioners took the first action with reference to the reinstatement of Mrs. O'Connell, an evicted tenant on the above estate; when was the notice to acquire the farm compulsorily served on the owner; and what is the cause of the delay, if any, in having the case heard?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners inquired into this case in 1907, and, after negotiations with the owner, instituted proceedings in March, 1909, for the acquisition of the farm in question under the Evicted Tenants Act. The case is pending for the decision under that Act.
