HC Deb 02 September 1909 vol 10 cc739-40W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have taken any recent action in regard to the Maybury estate, near Kan- turk; and whether, in view of the fact that the holding in question is now in the hands of a caretaker only, they can explain the delay in reinstating Mrs. O'Connell, the evicted tenant?


Proceedings have been instituted by the Estates' Commissioners under the Evicted Tenants Act in regard lo these lands, but an objection has been lodged by the owner. It is understood that it will be withdrawn if he is assured of a 12 per cent, bonus, and the decision of the Judicial Commissioner on the point will be obtained when he resumes his sittings
