HC Deb 06 September 1909 vol 10 cc1068-9W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners are aware that Mrs. Caroline Bourke, Ile- clash, Fermoy, has expressed her willingness to reinstate Mr. Patrick Myles in his former holding on her estate at Kilworth with the view to purchase; and whether the Commissioners can see their way to purchase the holding or communicate with the owner in order to ascertain the terms upon which Mr. Myles can be reinstated, seeing that no proceedings for the sale and purchase of the estate, as a whole, are contemplated, and may not be instituted for many years?


The Estates Commissioners have already approached the owner, and have been informed by her solicitor that she is not prepared to consider the application of Patrick Myles for reinstatement until the estate is being sold under the Irish Land Act, 1903.
