HC Deb 17 May 1909 vol 5 cc185-6W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the case of the Leigh evicted tenants has been placed before the Estates Commissioners; whether the Commissioners have communicated with the landlord, Mr. Leigh; and can he say what are the prospects of those tenants to get back to their homes?


The Estates Commissioners inform me that proceedings are pending for the acquisition under the provisions of the Evicted Tenants Act of 239 acres of land on the estate referred to, but the lands have not yet been acquired.1:
