HC Deb 16 March 1910 vol 15 cc486-7W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have received an application from the representatives of the late Patrick Cruise to be reinstated in his former holding on the Hussey estate, situate at Kilmainham Wood, county Meath; and what action has been taken in the matter?


The Commissioners have received applications from the son and also from the brother of Patrick Cruise. His former holding has been purchased under the Land Purchase Acts by the present occupier, and the Commissioners cannot interfere' in the matter. The Commissioners offered to allot another holding to the representatives of Cruise, but they refused to sign a joint agreement, and the Commissioners do not propose to take any further action in the case.


asked how many evicted tenants have been reinstated in the county of Waterford during the year 1909; and whether he would be good enough to give a list of their names?


Twenty-nine tenants or representatives of tenants evicted from holdings in county Waterford were reinstated or provided with new holdings by the Estates Commissioners during the year 1909, and one by the landlord on the suggestion of the Commissioners. The hon. Member will find detailed particulars with regard to evicted tenants who have been reinstated in the Quarterly Returns presented to Parliament in pursuance of Section 3 of the Evicted Tenants Act.
