HC Deb 05 April 1905 vol 144 cc463-4
MR. POWER (Waterford, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant † See page 319. of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have entered into negotiations for the purchase of any untenanted lands in the county Waterford; and whether they have already acquired any tract of such land, and how much, with a view to providing new holdings for evicted tenants.


The Commissioners are negotiating for the purchase of about 300 acres of untenanted land in the county.
