HC Deb 23 June 1904 vol 136 c998
MR. SHEEHY (Meath, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, when estates are sold in the Land Court under the Act of 1903, the I Commissioners may sanction the sale though part of the property is left unsold; and whether the unsold land, as in the case of Colonel White's estate in Clare, is treated as a separate estate; and, if so, under what provisions of the Act it can be so treated; and, if such unsold land was held by an evicted tenant, what steps do the Commissioners propose taking to have him restored to his holding.


The Estates Commissioners may offer to purchase a portion of the property for sale in the Land Judge's Court, and may declare it to be a separate estate for the purposes of the Act. The unsold portion may be purchased subsequently as another separate estate. Any application by an evicted tenant for restoration to his former holding would be duly considered by the Estates Commissioners before deciding to offer a portion only of a property for sale in the Land Judge's Court.
