HC Deb 01 March 1910 vol 14 c821W

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state the grounds on which the Estates Commissioners refused to deal with the application of Peter Victory, of Culleenmore, county Longford, to be restored to the farm from which he was evicted in 1881; whether he is aware that his predecessor in office promised that this man's case would be favourably considered, notwithstanding which promise nothing whatever has been done to relieve his condition; and whether he will now request the Commissioners to look into the case again with a view to providing a home and farm for this man?


The Estates Commissioners have considered the application of Peter Victory for reinstatement to a holding in the townland of Culleenmore, containing fourteen acres, now in the possession of his daughter, and they have decided not to take any action in the matter.
