§ MR. VINCENT KENNEDY (Cavan, W.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will say what steps the Estates Commissioners have taken to secure the restoration of Thomas Brady, son of an evicted tenant who died in New York, November, 1906. on the Captain Smith, Bellamont Forest estate, Cootehill, county Cavan; will he say who is in possession of this farm; and whether or not he paid any fine on getting possession.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) I beg to refer the hon. Member to the Answer which I gave to his previous Question on this subject on 23rd April last. † The Estates Commissioners have no information that Thomas Brady, senior,† See (4) Dabates, clxxii., 1556.960 is dead; but in any event they do not intend to take any further action at present on the application of Thomas Brady, junior. They will, however, make further inquiries when the estate is being inspected. The farm is now in the occupation of Robert Beattie. The Commissioners have no information as to the terms upon which he received possession.
