§ Mr. SHEEHAN
asked the Chief Secretary whether William Geary, an evicted tenant on the estate of Miss Riversdale, Kildorrery, county Cork, has been reinstated in his former holding since the 12th January, 1911; whether he is considerably 1478W handicapped in his agricultural operations until the grant necessary to the proper equipment and restocking the farm and for building purposes is administered; and will steps be taken to have the grant promised to him allocated without delay?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
William Geary has been reinstated in the holding formerly occupied by him, and has signed an undertaking to purchase it, which was lodged with the Estates Commissioners on 12th January, 1911. The Commissioners have sanctioned a free grant of £100 being made to him, and it will be expended at an early date.
