HC Deb 28 February 1910 vol 14 cc719-20W

asked the Chief Secretary whether the Estates Commissioners have received intimation from the following planters in county Limerick, that they will give up their present holdings if provided with equivalents elsewhere; and, if so, have steps been taken to have them removed from the localities where they are now situated, namely, of planters: Patrick Whelan, Brittas Boher, Cloncurry property, Martin Ryan, Brittas Cloncurry property, John Griffin, Pallasgreen, Erasmus Smith property, James Lane, Pallasgreen, Erasmus Smith property?


The intimation referred to has been received by the Estates Commissioners. They have already provided another holding for the former tenant of the holding now occupied by James Lane, and are making inquiries with a view to providing other holdings for Patrick Whelan and John Griffin. The Commissioners have refused to take any action as regards Mrs. McCoy, who made application for reinstatement as the sister of the former tenant of the holding now occupied by Martin Ryan, and who is already in occupation of another holding containing over 100 statute acres.
