HC Deb 19 February 1918 vol 103 c632W

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?


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.
