§ MR. EDWARD BARRY (Cork County, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will state how many and what estates have been purchased since the passing of the Land Act, 1903, in South Cork; how many tenants are affected; what is the total purchase price and net rental of each estate so purchased.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
Statistics by Parliamentary Divisions are not available. In the entire county 207 estates, comprising 3,204 holdings, have been purchased. Of these holdings 3,170 were tenanted, the rental being £68,365. The purchase price of the tenanted land was £1,453,507, and of the untenanted land £27,765.
