HC Deb 04 April 1905 vol 144 cc325-6

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Congested Districts Board have purchased the Leonard Estate, Tuam, county Galway, and is it the intention of the Board to divide the fifty-five acres of untenanted land outside the demesne amongst the small tenants in the district; and, if so, will Stephen Joyce, whose farm consists of about eleven acres, and another tenant named John Daly, whose farm consists of about one and a-half acres, be suitably provided for.


This land is untenanted and remote from a congested district. The Board purchased it with the object of exchanging it for land within congested districts in order to relieve congestion. It is not intended to transfer any portion of the land to the persons named.
