§ Captain SHEEHAN
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether Timothy Murphy, an evicted tenant on the Thompson-Orpen Estate, at Coolikerane, Millstreet, county Cork, has, since his eviction ten years ago, been paying into the Board of Works annual instalments of a loan under the Land Law (Ireland) Acts; and whether he can give an instance where any other evicted tenant has done the same thing?
§ Mr. DUKE
Since July, 1915, Timothy Murphy has been paying, under an arrangement suggested by his solicitor, instalments of a loan from the Board of Works, for which he is personally liable. This personal liability is not affected by his eviction. I am informed that similar arrangements have been made in the case of several other evicted tenants.
