HC Deb 12 March 1912 vol 35 cc1064-5W

asked whether the Estates Commissioners have considered the application for reinstatement of John Haran, an evicted tenant on the Johnston estate, Kinlough, county Leitrim; and, if not, will it be considered before the estate is vested?


The Estates Commissioners received an application from John Haran for re-instatement in a holding which he states was formerly held by his father as a middleman on the Johnston estate, county Leitrim. The lands are now in the occupation of two tenants who have signed agreements to purchase under the Land Purchase Acts, and the Commissioners cannot take any action in the matter of Haran's application, which does not come within the provisions of the Evicted Tenants Act, 1907.


asked when will evicted tenants on the Ventry estate, county Kerry, be dealt with and given Grants for building and stocking?


The Estates Commissioners have recently caused inquiries to be made into the applications received from persons seeking reinstatement as evicted tenants on this property, but these inquiries are not yet completed.


asked the cause of the delay in reinstating Messrs. Timothy Moynehan, of Lisrobin, Meens, and John Barry, of Meens, two evicted tenants on the estate of Lord Lisle, county Cork, agreements to purchase by the tenants on the estate having been entered into and lodged almost two years ago and the Estates Commission inspector having inspected the property early in the year 1911?


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they have asked the vendor to reinstate Moynihan and Barry at prices fixed by them. The vendor has agreed to do so provided these men agree to sign purchase agreements at these prices. No purchase agreements signed by them have yet been lodged, and until this is done the Commissioners cannot take any further action in the matter.
