§ Mr. FRANCIS MEEHAN
asked whether the Estates Commissioners have received 593W an application from Mrs. Anne M'Morrow, widow of Patrick M'Morrow, an evicted tenant on the estate of H. J. B. Clements, Manorhamilton, for a grant in aid of building her dwelling-house and stocking her farm; and whether, having regard to the fact that M'Morrow lost his life through being compelled to live in a mud cabin in the bed of a river after being evicted, and that his widow and orphans have no means to work the farm, the Estates Commissioners would give her a free grant to enable her to build the house and work the farm?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The question of making a free grant to Mrs. M'Morrow will be considered by the Estates Commissioners when the estate is being dealt with by them in order of priority.
§ Mr. FETHERSTONHAUGH
asked if the Estates Commissioners have received an application from Robert Graham, Aughaleagiue, Ederny, county Fermanagh, who was evicted in 1895 and has since been living on a small piece of reclaimed land belonging to his wife near his former holding; and, if so, will the Commissioners deal with the application under the Evicted Tenants Act or note Graham's case with a view to providing him with an economic holding on some neighbouring estate?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners have received an application from Robert Graham seeking reinstatment in a holding on the Bird Estate, county Fermanagh, formerly occupied by him. As his application was not received within the period limited by the Evicted Tenants Act, 1907, it cannot be dealt with under that Act.
