HC Deb 19 July 1905 vol 149 c1182
MR. REDDY (King's County, Birr)

On behalf of the hon. Member for East Galway, I bog to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the farm of Woodbrook, part of the Netterville Estate, in the county of Galway, has been purchased by the Congested Districts Board; and, if so, whether, in view of the number of uneconomic holdings surrounding this farm, it is the intention of the Board to convert them into economic ones by an increase of land from the Woodbrook Farm.


This farm has been purchased by the Board for the purpose of enlarging the small holdings of their tenants on the adjacent Fallon Estate. The Board do not intend to dispose of the land to others than their own tenants.
