HC Deb 27 June 1904 vol 136 c1258

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the sale of that portion of the King-Harman Estate, situate at Ballymote, county Sligo, has been sanctioned; whether a large farm on this estate, which the small tenants and labourers of the locality have been using as an accommodation farm for a number of years, has been sold to a stranger named Nuttall; and, if so, whether inquiries will be made by the Land Commission into the circumstances of this transaction.


The sale has not yet been sanctioned. The inspectors are on the estate inspecting it; they will report on the circumstances of this and all other holdings.
