HC Deb 25 February 1904 vol 130 cc991-2
MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can ate when the Porter and Cross be Estate, county Tyrone, first went into the Land Judge's Court; whether the tenants were served with notice of sale in 1898, and if he is aware that whilst sale is pending a portion of the tenantry cannot get second-term rents fixed and are paying the old rent, and, if so, whether he proposes to take any action in the matter.


I have no specific information on the matters mentioned in the Question. The sale of the property under the Act of 1896 presented many difficulties owing to complications in the title. But negotiations are now pending with the Estates Commissioners with a view to the sale of the estate under Section 7 of the Act of last year.
