§ Mr. JOHN O'DONNELL
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether any steps will be taken by the Estates Commissioners to provide Catherine Casey and Thady Flaherty, evicted tenants, who held holdings of land on the Brabazon estate, at Cahir, Aughamore, in the Swinford union, county Mayo, with holdings of land elsewhere than from where they were 1127W evicted, seeing that their farms are in the hands of others at present; failing that, whether they would arrange with the persons now in possession of these lands, by giving them reasonable compensation, as in their dealings with other tenants under similar circumstances; and, if not, will he say why?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners, in the exercise of their discretion, decided to take no action in either of these cases. It would be contrary to the established practice to state the grounds of their decision.
