§ Mr. SMYTH
asked the Chief Secretary if he can state if the Estates Commissioners will have the evicted tenants on the estate of Mr. H. J. B. Clements, Lough Rynn, county Leitrim, reinstated on the untenanted land which the landlord gave for that purpose when the estate was being sold; and, in the event of this not being carried out, although it was one of the conditions of sale between the landlord and the tenants, will farms be provided for them elsewhere?
§ Mr. DUKE
Two evicted tenants have been reinstated in their formr holdings on this estate as purchasers under the Land Purchase Acts. The Commissioners "have decided after inquiry to take no action in regard to the remaining applications of persons seeking reinstatement as evicted tenants on this estate. No untenanted land was included by the owner for the purposes of their reinstatement, but some thirty-eight acres of untenanted lands have been divided amongst the occupiers of six small holdings in the neighbourhood. The purchase was not subject to the suggested condition. The reply to the concluding part of the question is in the negative.
