§ Mr. PATRICK WHITE
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether the Estates Commissioners are aware that one of the occupants of the labourers' cottages on the estate of Colonel Fitzhenry Smith, situate at Newtown, county Meath, is an evicted tenant named Tully; whether they are aware that he is willing to comply with any statutory obligations necessary to qualify him for a plot of the estate; and if his case will be favourably considered?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners have not received any application, for reinstatement from the person referred to. An application has been received on his behalf for a parcel in which it is stated he is a labourer. At this stage of the proceedings, the Commissioners are not prepared to reply to the concluding portion of the question.
