§ Mr. DORIS
asked the Chief Secretary how many evicted tenants have been reinstated or provided with new holdings in the Poor Law union of Westport, county Mayo, under the Land Purchase Acts; whether applications for reinstatement or for new holdings have been made to the Estates Commissioners by or on behalf of the following evicted tenants, and, if so, when their applications will be dealt with 1048W by the Commissioners: James Walsh, Johnsrow, Westport; John M'Greoul, Johnsrow, Westport; Anthony Kerrigan, Peter Street, Westport; Mrs. Sammon, Carrowkennedy, Westport; Arthur O'Malley, Altamount Street, Westport; and James Fadian, Westport Quay?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The statistics of the Estates Commissioners are not compiled by unions, and it is not therefore possible to supply the information asked for in the first part of the question. Forty evicted tenants or their representatives have been reinstated in county Mayo. The names of James Walsh, Anthony Kerrigan, Mrs. Sammon, and Austin O'Malley have been noted for consideration in the allotment of untenanted land. The Commissioners have decided to take no action with regard to the other applications referred to.
