HC Deb 14 July 1904 vol 138 c45

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners are aware that notice to quit has been served by a landlord named Robert Jones Lloyd, of London, on his tenant, John Hanly, of Gunthill, Elphin, because he refused to give twenty-three years purchase for his farm held at the yearly rent of £22 10s.; and whether, in view of these proceedings, the Estates Commissioners will sanction without inquiry or inspection any sale of a portion of the Jones Lloyd Estate in Leitrim or Roscommon.


I have no information that the facts are as alleged. In respect of the second part of the Question I would refer to my statement in answer to similar inquiries addressed to me on the 30th June.†
