HC Deb 18 February 1904 vol 130 cc253-4

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will direct the attention of the Estate Commissioners to the case of John Kenny, Glannagh, county Longford, whose immediate landlord is willing to sell to him but cannot do so in consequence of the attitude of the head landlord; and whether he will direct the Estate Commissioners to purchase the entire holding, both of the middle landlord and tenant, with a view to resale to the latter.


No application has been made to the Commissioners on behalf of John Kenny, or of the middleman or head landlord. In the absence of all information as to the nature of the interests of the immediate landlord and head landlord it is impossible to say which course is proper to be adopted.

MR. FLAVIN (Kerry. N.)

Will the matter be considered by the Estates Commissioners?


Yes, when the conditions have been fulfilled. There is some technical point involved.
