Sir THOMAS ESMONDE
asked the Chief Secretary if he will use his influence with the Estates Commissioners so that they will allow Peter Dwyer to purchase a small holding of one and a half acres, which he holds as a sub-tenant on the Hogan estate, county Wexford?
The Estates Comissioners have inquired into this case, and are not prepared to declare Peter Dwyer, jun., to be a direct tenant for the purposes of sale of the plot which he holds as sub-tenant.
Mr. WILLIAM O'BRIEN
asked the Chief Secretary whether he has received a copy of a map prepared by the Unpurchased Tenants' Association of East Down, showing how the districts purchased at greatly reduced annuities are surrounded on all sides by townlands still unpurchased, where the farmers suffer from high rents and uncertainty as to the future; and whether ho will place the map in the Tea Room as soon as the promised Bill for the completion of land purchase is introduced next Session?
I have received the map. I have no doubt that the authors will be glad to supply the hon. Member with a copy, but I cannot undertake to exhibit it and any similar maps which may be prepared by unpurchased tenants in other counties in the way he suggests.
