HC Deb 25 February 1904 vol 130 cc989-90
MR. LUNDON (Limerick, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that John Shanahan, of Boskill, Cahirconlish, county Limerick, at the inquiry in Limerick No. 1 District Council on the 7th Scheme under the Labourers Acts was unsuccessful in obtaining an additional half acre by reason of the fact that he had left his cottage for some months but with his sister in charge of it; and whether, seeing that he returned after those few months, can he arrange that Shanahan may obtain the additional half acre which is situated on Mrs. Minchin's grass lands amounting to 230 acres.


There is no ower now to authorise the acquisition of an additional allotment in this case, the Provisional Order having been made absolute. It will be open, however, to the district council when formulating a fresh scheme to renew the proposal in this respect.
