§ Mr. SHEEHAN
asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that in November, 1907, the Estates Commissioners wrote to the hon. Member for Mid-Cork, who was then acting as secretary to the Cork advisory committee, stating that Cornelius Geary's application for reinstatement in a holding on the Lady Annaly estate had been inquired into, and that his name had been placed on the approved list; if he can state whether any steps have since been taken to carry out the intentions of the Commissioners by providing this man with a suitable holding; and if he will state how the matter stands at present?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners received an application from Cornelius Geary for reinstatement in a holding formerly occupied by him on the estate of Lord Annaly, county Limerick, and provisionally noted his name for consideration in the allotment of untenanted land acquired by them. On further inquiry and consideration the Commissioners decided to take no action in the matter.
