HC Deb 10 March 1910 vol 14 cc1625-6

asked whether the Estates Commissioners have inquired into the claim of Timothy W. Kelly, evicted tenant, of Shanacashel, Gueeves, Kil-michael, Macroom, on the estate of John and Timothy O'Mahony; was this man evicted in 1896; did his brother acquire the farm in 1897 and allow the former tenant back as caretaker; is he in every sense a bonâ fide evicted tenant, entitled to reinstatement under the provisions of the Evicted Tenants Act, 1907; did Mr. Vaughan, inspector of the Estates Commissioners, report in favour of his claim, and estimate the fair rent of the holding at £9; were the landlords offered twenty years' purchase of this rent and did they refuse, demanding twenty-three and a half year's purchase of the old rent at £11 15s.; has the present tenant offered to surrender the holding to the Estates Commissioners if he is suitably compensated for his out-of-pocket expenditure on it; and will the Commissioners exercise their discretion in favour of the evicted tenant?


The Estates Commissioners have inquired into Kelly's application for reinstatement in a holding, now occupied by his brother, from which he appears to have been evicted in 1896. The Commissioners have decided not to take any action in the matter.
