HC Deb 06 April 1905 vol 144 cc649-50
MR. ROCHE (Galway, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether Mr. Rothwell, petty sessions clerk of Ballinasloe, is to get any portion of the untenanted land on the estate purchased by the Estates Commissioners from Mr. Mahon, Ballydonlon, county Galway, in view of the fact that he does not live within several miles of the estate, and that he has more than one farm elsewhere.


The Commissioners have no information beyond that which I have already given to the hon. Member. Mr. Rothwell may possibly be negotiating with the owner for the purchase of part of the demesne lands, but of this the Commissioners have no knowledge.
