HC Deb 24 June 1902 vol 109 cc1517-8
MR. LUNDON (Limerick, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Land Commission has refused to sell individually to the tenants in the few unsold holdings on the White Estate which are situated in the village of Labasheeda, county Clare; and that the Land Purchase Commission has objected to advance the purchase money, whilst some tenants are themselves prepared to pay the full amount for their holdings; and will he cause inquiry to be made into the cause of those refusals.


The Land Commissioners stated that advances under the Land Purchase Acts would not be made in respect of certain very small garden plots, but that if the sales were carried out by cash payments the Commissioners would vest the holdings in the purchasers, if so desired.
