§ Mr. FRANCIS MEEHAN
asked whether the Congested Districts Board would ac- 961 quire the townland of Cleragh, on the Corscadden estate, Glenade, county Leitrim, for the purpose of redistribution amongst the evicted tenants and uneconomic holders in the district, having regard to the fact that it is the only waste land in the vicinity and is much required for relief of congestion?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The solicitor for the owner of the estate referred to has informed the Congested Districts Board that the necessary maps and documents are being prepared to enable an inspection of the property to be made by the Board with a view to deciding whether they will make an offer for purchase. Pending an inspection the Board cannot say how they would deal with the lands if acquired by them.
§ Mr. LUNDON
asked if the Chief Secretary will say how many evicted tenants whose cases have been passed by the Estates Commissioners have yet to be provided for in county Limerick, and how many cases were rejected; will the names of those to be provided for be given, and also the property from which they were evicted; and will the names of those whose claims have been rejected be also given?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
I would refer the hon. Member to my replies to the questions on this subject asked by the hon. Member for West Limerick on the 3rd and 7th August.
