HC Deb 01 July 1910 vol 18 c1295W
Captain CRAIG

asked the Chief Secretary whether the Estates Commissioners have had under consideration, from time to time since 1903, applications from Mrs. Mary Ann Eccles, of Ashgrove, Castlefin, county Donegal, for reinstatement on the farm of 102 acres on the Hastings estate, county Donegal, from -which her late father, Joseph Mortland, had been evicted; whether her application has been finally refused; if so, whether the fact that she inherited a small farm of 12 acres through her mother weighed with the Commissioners in their decision; if so, why they gave Thomas Kieve a new farm of twenty-five acres on the Gamble estate when he was in possession of seventeen acres on the Gledstane estate, which he sub-let annually; and can he say on what grounds a difference was made in the case of these two evicted tenants?


I have nothing to add to my reply to the question on the same subject asked by the hon. Member for East Donegal on 13th April last.
