§ Mr. DANIEL BOYLE
asked why the application of Miss Barbara M'Andrew to be reinstated in the holding formerly occupied by her father at Crannagh, Knockanillaun, county Mayo, on the estate of Mrs. Perry, has been refused by the Estates Commissioners?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners inquired into the application of Barbara M'Andrew for reinstatement in a holding formerly occupied by her father. The holding is in the possession of another tenant, and the Commissioners decided to take no action in the matter.
§ Mr. BOYLE
asked the Chief Secretary why the Estates Commissioners have declined to consider the application of Michael Harte, Cloonturk, Ballina, to be restored to the holding from which his father was evicted on the estate of Lord Arran or to another holding in lieu thereof; is he aware that the present tenant of Harte's former holding is willing to exchange to another of similar value, so that Harte may return to his former home; and if he will instruct the Estates Commissioners to reconsider their refusal in this case, as Harte is known to be a deserving man?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners have considered Michael Harte's application for reinstatement in a holding on the Arran estate at one time occupied by his father and now in the occupation of another tenant. The Commissioners decided not to interfere in the matter of Harte's application, which was not lodged within the time prescribed by the Evicted Tenants Act.
