HC Deb 22 July 1909 vol 8 c739W

asked the Chief Secretary if he will say whether, on the sale of the Eden estate, Dungimmon, county Cavan one of the conditions of sale was that Patrick Morgan, an evicted tenant, was to be reinstated on his former holding; will he say if this has been done, or whether the Estates Commissioners intend to take any steps to deal with the restoration of this evicted tenant; and, if so, what?


The Estates Commissioners inform me that it would appear from communications received from the tenants' solicitor that the statement in the first part of the question is correct. The Commissioners inquired into Morgan's application, and, in the exercise of the discretion vested in them, they decided to take no action in reference to his reinstatement. The tenants' solicitor was notified of this decision in July, 1908, and he was at the same time informed that if the tenants wish to have their purchase agreements set aside they were at liberty, if so advised, to make application with that object to Commissioners in Court on notice of motion. Up to the present this has not been done.
