HC Deb 09 May 1904 vol 134 cc765-6
MR. HAYDEN (Roscommon, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in the division of untenanted land acquired by the Estates Commissioners for the enlargement of small holdings and other purposes of the Purchase Act of last year, the Estates Commissioners will treat the herds employed on these lands as persons to whom money may be advanced to purchase one of the new holdings.


If the herd comes under one of the classes of persons mentioned in Section 2 of the Act, the Estates Commissioners will consider the advisability of giving him a parcel of land or, if they think fit and the land is available, they may make him a tenant and give him an advance under Section 53.
