HC Deb 04 February 1904 vol 129 c352
MR. J.P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland how many applications from evicted tenants for restoration to their holdings have been received under the Land Purchase Act of 1903 by the Estate Commissioners; and whether the Commissioners, with a view to restore these tenants to their own or equivalent holdings, have yet made any overtures or inquiries as to the purchase of untenanted lands in county Longford.


Fifty-one such applications have been received from the county Longford. No untenanted lands in the county have yet been offered for sale to the Commissioners.
