§ Mr. J. P. FARRELL
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he would state why it was that John Reilly, Market House Road, Granard, who was evicted from his farm at Derryniggan, near Carrigallen, county Leitrim, was neither restored to his farm nor an equivalent holding provided for him, notwithstanding the fact that he was twice brought from Granard to Ballinamore, a distance of over twenty miles, to interview the Estates Commissioners' inspectors, one of whom definitely promised to recommend his case for favourable consideration; and will his case even now receive attention?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
As stated in my reply to the hon. Member's question of 22nd June, 1908, the Estates Commissioners have inquired into the application of John Reilly, and, having regard to the comfortable circumstances of the applicant, and to the fact that the holding is in the occupation of a tenant, the Commissioners have decided to take no action in the matter.
