HC Deb 04 April 1905 vol 144 c324

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Burdett Estate, at Banagher, King's County, consisting of about 400 Irish acres of prime land, at present let to graziers on the eleven months system, is shortly to be sold in order to satisfy various claimants to the property of the late owner; and whether, in view of the number of small uneconomic holdings, most of them upon bog land, that exist in this district, he will recommend the Congested Districts Board to buy in this estate with a view to resale to tenants in need of enlarged holdings.


This estate is not suitable for the purposes of the Board, who do not propose to acquire it.
