§ Mr. KILBRIDE
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he is aware that the tenants on Captain Murphy's estate, Lullymore, Rathangan, county Kildare, met the landlord some time ago and asked him to sell, which he refused to do under any conditions; that the tenants through their solicitor forwarded a memorial to the Estates Commissioners setting out the facts of the situation; that there are fourteen tenants on this property whose families number ninety-one human beings, the aggregate of these fourteen holdings being seventy-five acres, all of which has been reclaimed by them from bog and heath; whether Captain Murphy, who is non-resident, has on his own hands in Lullymore about 200 acres and ninety-five let on the eleven months' system, in Kilpatrick on his own hands forty acres, let on the eleven months' system ninety acres, in Lullybeg on his own hands seventy acres, set by eleven months ten acres; have the 1768 Estates Commissioners considered the circumstances of this estate; and what action they propose to take in the matter?
§ Mr. REDMOND BARRY
The Estates Commissioners have received the memorial referred to, and are in communication with the owner on the subject. They have no information as to the other matters referred to in the question?
§ Mr. KILBRIDE
Will the right hon. Gentleman indicate when the Estates Commissioners are going to reply to a memorial that has been sent by an Eden-derry solicitor?
