To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will give the date on which Mr. Henry Fiend became tenant of the farm of Ballinamona, on the Kingston Estate, Mitchelstown, from which farm Mr. Thomas Kent was evicted, and what is the description of the letting to Mr. Frend; if the evicted tenant has made an application to the Estates Commissioners for reinstatement; and whether he will arrange that the tenancy created by or for Mr. Frend himself, the agent of the Kingston Estate, will not be permitted to stand in the way of the reinstatement of Mr. Kent in his old holding. (Answered by Mr. Birrell.) Proceedings have not been instituted before the Estates Commissioners for the sale of the holding in respect of which Thomas Kent has lodged an application for reinstatement. The Commissioners are, therefore, not in a position to give particulars as regards the interest of the present occupier.
