§ MR. LUNDON
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland can he say whether the Estates Commissioners, or any person deputed by them, have entered into negotiations with Thomas McGrath, evicted tenant, of Ballyloundaish, Herbertstown, county Limerick, and Daniel Devitt, of Cashel, county Tipperary, who, as planter, holds McGrath's farm on the Fitzgerald-Tuthill property, now in course of sale to the tenants; and, if they have entered on negotiations with either one or both parties, what has been the result.
I informed the hon. Member, in reply to his previous Question of 9th instant,† of the steps which the Estates Commissioners have taken in this case. The owner has not yet informed the Commissioners whether or not he is prepared to sell the holding formerly occupied by McGrath.
§ † See (4) Debate, clvi., 1307.
If the hon. Member will refer to the reply I gave him on May 9th he will be in possession of all the information I have on the subject.
