HC Deb 15 June 1915 vol 72 c548W

asked whether, though Eugene Ferris, Bally-mullen, Tralee, evicted tenant on the Foley estate, was recognised as an evicted tenant under the Evicted Tenants Act, nothing whatever has yet been done to provide him with land; and what steps do the Estates Commissioners propose to take in this matter?


I am informed that, after careful inquiry, the Estates Commissioners have decided in the exercise of the discretion vested in them that Ferris's case is not one in which they should take any action.


asked what grants it is proposed to give to Patrick Meehan and Peter Egan, both of Doon, Tralee, evicted tenants on the estate of George W. Hussey Hickson; and whether, as both these tenants are very poorly circumstanced, having neither house nor stock, substantial grants will be immediately made to them?


Until the parties referred to have signed agreements for the purchase of the holdings, the Estates Commissioners are not prepared to say more than that they will give favourable consideration to applications for grants on their behalf.
