§ Mr. KENNEDY
asked the Chief Secretary if he will state the numbers of the paid staff in the Irish Land Commission under suitable headings for the years 1913, 1914, 1915, and up to date for 1916; and will he also give similar figures for the Estates Commissioners and state how many evicted tenants have been dealt with in 1914, 1915, and to the latest available date in the present year?
§ Mr. DUKE
The particulars asked for in the first part of the question as regards the staff of the Land Commission, including the Estates Commissioners, are given in the Estimates. The number of evicted tenants reinstated in their former holdings, or provided with new holdings as purchasers under the Land Purchase Acts in the years mentioned, are 90, 47, and 44.
