§ Mr. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that, in answer to the unstarred Question put by the hon. Member for North Longford on 19th March, 1907, he promised that in the case of girls named Lennon, who were evicted on the Due de Stacpoole's estate, the Estates Commissioners would take action on their behalf when this estate was being sold; whether he is aware that this estate is now in the Commissioners' hands; and will he direct their attention to the case of these girls, with a view to inquiry being made, so that they would be compensated at least in part for their lost farm.
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners inform me that no purchase agreements have as yet been lodged in respect of the estate of the Due de Stacpoole, county Longford, and they are unable to identify any application for reinstatement on behalf of the persons named Lennon referred to in the Question.
