§ Mr. DUFFY
asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that an application for reinstatement to his father's holding was received by the Estates Commissioners from Martin Moloney, Church Street, Gort; was the application considered, having regard to the fact that Mr. Moloney's father was evicted out of a small holding on the estate of Lord Gough; and will the Commissioners, in allocating the lands on this estate, consider the claim of this evicted tenant?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
Martin Moloney made application in June, 1911, for an allotment of land stating that he had been evicted from a house and a few acres on the Gough estate. The Estates Commissioners understand that his father had been employed at one time as a smith on the property, and when removed from that position he lost the privileges of grazing and tillage accommodation which were attached thereto. In any event the application was not lodged within the46W period prescribed by the Evicted Tenants Act, 1907. The reply to the last paragraph of the question is in the negative.
