HC Deb 04 August 1904 vol 139 c973

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether Lord Clanmorris has applied for an advance to the Estates Commissioners in connection with the sale of his estate in the Ballinrobe Union, county Mayo; and, if so, whether, seeing that there are some grazing ranches on the estate suitable for the enlargment of holdings and the creation of new ones, the Estates Commissioners will refuse an advance unless these grazing ranches are given over to them in their present condition with a view to having them properly distributed amongst the other tenants and others, in accordance with the provisions of the Land Act of 1903.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) No application for the sale of this estate has been made to the Commissioners.
