§ MR. THOMAS F. SMYTH (Leitrim, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state if the evicted tenants on the estate of Mr. George White, situate in county Leitrim, and which estate has been sold to the tenants within the past few weeks, have been reinstated in the holdings formerly occupied by them, or have the tenants in occupation of these holdings been permitted to sign purchase agreements.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The purchase agreements in the case of this estate have not yet been lodged with the Estates Commissioners, and consequently they have no information as to how the evicted tenants have been dealt with in the sale. Three applications for reinstatement have been received, and these have been referred to an inspector for inquiry.
