SMYTH asked the Chief Secretary if he can state when the evicted tenants on the estate of Mr. George White, Cloone Grange, Mohill, county Leitrim, [this was the address he gave in 1919 on demobilisation]will be reinstated in their holdings, particularly as the parties at present in occupation of those farms are prepared to surrender the same on getting compensation from the Estates Commissioners? Mr. BIRRELL The Estates Commissioners have received applications from six persons seeking reinstatement to holdings on this estate. Three of these applications were received after the date mentioned in the Evicted Tenants Act, 1907, and cannot be dealt with under that Act.
