HC Deb 26 February 1912 vol 34 cc1139-40W

asked the Chief Secretary if he will ascertain from the Estates Commissioners when they propose to make the roadway and the fences at Camolin Park, county Wexford, promised to Mr. James Middleton, evicted tenant?


The Estates Commissioners have sanctioned a free Grant to the evicted tenant referred to of £100 for the purchase of stock, and have also sanctioned advances to him, repayable by annuity, of £80 for building and £60 for fences. They are at present in communication with their inspector as to the expenditure of these advances, but have not yet received his report.


asked the Chief Secretary what steps, if any, have been taken to secure the reinstatement of Michael M. Shanahan in his evicted farm in Valentia, on the estate of the Knight of Kerry; whether he is aware that this farm is situated at least a mile from the home farm; and whether, in the alternative, a new holding will be provided on the glebe farm?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to his question on this subject on the 20th June last.


asked what decision the Estates Commissioners have given upon an application under the Evicted Tenants Act by John Costello, who was evicted from the estate of Michael Walsh, at Mayo Abbey, county Mayo, or whether the Commissioners intend to reinstate the evicted tenant in his former holding or to allot him a new one in lieu of it?


The Estates Commissioners have noted John Costelloe's name for consideration in the allotment of such untenanted land as they may acquire.
