§ Mr. HACKETT
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he will explain what steps the Estates Commissioners have taken to provide a farm for Michael 1289W Buckley, Toom, Cappawhite, county Tipperary, seeing they have admitted his claim as an evicted tenant?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
Buckley's name was provisionally noted by the Estates Commissioners for consideration in the allotment of untenanted land, but on further inquiry the Commissioners have decided not to provide him with a farm. It appears that on his eviction from his former holding in 1894 it was relet to his wile and father-in-law, who paid up all arrears and who subsequently sold it for £520 to the present occupiers.
