§ 8. Mr. J. P. FARRELL
asked whether the application of Daniel Murtagh, of Esker, for the erection, or assistance to erect, a house under the Evicted Tenants Act, 1907, will be entertained; and, if not, will he state the reason why?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
No application for reinstatement in a holding under the Evicted Tenants Act, 1907, appears to have been received by the Estates Commissioners from Daniel Murtagh. In connection with the sale of the estate of John S. Ireland, county Longford, under the Irish Land Act, 1903, Daniel Murtagh agreed to purchase his holding, and it was vested in him by the Commissioners subject to an advance of £44. He applied for an advance for building purposes, but the Commissioners could not see their way to grant it.
