HC Deb 31 March 1896 vol 39 cc517-8
MR. J. C. FLYNN (Cork, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether an agreement has been filed in the Land Commission, by which David Walsh, of Feddans, County Waterford, has agreed to purchase a farm at Feddans from Mr. Maquay under the Land Purchase Acts; whether the inspector has yet visited the holding; whether the Land Commission are aware that the terms of purchase of the farm in question have been fixed on condition that the purchaser will, at the same time, accept a conveyance from the landlord of a second holding adjoining which is subject to an annuity under the Land Purchase Acts; and whether the Land Commission Inspector will take all the circumstances into account in making his report to the Land Commission?


This Question has been referred to the Land Commissioners for report, but owing to the short notice given of the Question, there has not been sufficient time to obtain the observations of the Commissioners to enable a reply to be given to-day.
