HC Deb 25 July 1905 vol 150 c191
MR. SULLIVAN (Westmeath, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Irish Estates Commissioners or the Land Commission have sold a grass farm called Rockfield, near Streamstown, county Westmeath; if so, who is the purchaser; and was any effort made by the Commissioners to have the land divided among the small under-tenants on the property and occupiers of uneconomic holdings in the immediate locality.


This farm was sold by direct sale, under the Act of 1903, by the owner to the occupying tenant, Mr. W. H. Stuart. No question, therefore, arose as to the division of the farm amongst other tenants.

MR. KILBRIDE (Kildare, S.)

Was the man to whom the farm was sold an eleven months tenant or one entitled to have a judicial rent fixed?


He must have been a tenant in order to come under the Act.


Was he entitled to have a judicial rent fixed?

[No Answer was returned.]
