To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state if the evicted farms on the T. W. Sands estate, at Knockanure, North Kerry, have been inspected by the Estates Commissioners; whether the landlord has promised to reinstate the evicted tenants; and, if so, what is the result of the inspection and promised reinstatement.

( Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners have had the evicted farms inspected and the landlord has intimated that he is willing to sell the lands to the Commissioners, with a view to the reinstatement of the evicted tenants. As soon as the necessary legal requirements have been satisfied the Commissioners will proceed with the purchase.
