§ Mr. J. P. FARRELL
asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that, in the case of Joseph and Bridget Mullooly, evicted tenants, of the parish of Rathcline, county Longford, who were refused relief under the Evicted Tenants Act because it was alleged that they held 100 acres of land already, there are six sons of Bridget Mullooly waiting for their portion of these 100 acres, which would leave them a comparatively small area each; and will he in such circumstances refer their case to the Estates Commissioners with a view to providing for some of them equivalent holdings elsewhere?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
I have referred this question to the Estates Commissioners, who have nothing to add to the statement contained in my reply to the question on the same subject asked by the hon. Member on 22nd June, 1908. The Estates Commissioners were already aware that the evicted tenant had six sons.
