§ Mr. MULDOON
asked whether the Estates Commissioners have sanctioned the sale to the tenants on the estate of Colonel Mervyn Tynte, of Dunlavin, county Wicklow; whether any provision was made at the time of sale for reinstating the evicted tenants; and whether the Estates Commissioners have sanctioned or propose to sanction the sale to Thomas Lee, who is in occupation of one of the evicted farms, although the evicted tenant offered the agent the full amount due?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The purchase agreements in this case were only lodged in September last, and the Estates Commissioners have not sanctioned any advances. When the estate is being dealt with in its proper turn they will make inquiry as the evicted tenants. No purchase agreement signed by Lee has been lodged.
