§ MR. PATRICK WHITE (Meath, S.)
To ask the Chief-Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have received a memorial from the tenants on the Reynell Estate, County Meath, suggesting that the untenanted land on the estate should be purchased and distributed among the occupiers of uneconomic holdings and the descendants of evicted tenants on the estate; and if the prayer of the petition will be acceded to.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) A communication on behalf of these tenants has been addressed to the Estates Commissioners asking them to acquire the untenanted land on the estate. The matter will be considered when the estate is being dealt with under the Irish Land Act, 1903.
