HC Deb 27 April 1910 vol 17 c612W

asked the Chief Secretary if he is aware that the tenants of the village of Johnstown, county Kilkenny, Healy estate, have sent a memorial to the Estates Commissioners praying that their holdings may be included in the sale with the other tenants who have purchased on this estate; if so, what steps, if any, have been taken or are to be taken; whether he is aware that some of those tenants, who have refused to purchase on account of the nature of the terms, have been proceeded against, and that evictions are pending; and whether, in view of the disturbance which an eviction is likely to create, and of the fact that those tenants have already offered to allow their cases to be settled by arbitration, he will use his influence with a view of having this village included in the sale with the other tenants?


The Estates Commissioners do not appear to have received the memorial referred to, nor can they find that this estate is pending for sale before them.
