HC Deb 28 June 1905 vol 148 c383

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Dean Galbraith, of county Tyrone, has now made an offer to his tenants in county Longford to sell this estate to them; and whether, seeing that most of the property is mountain and bog, tenanted by tenants under £4 valuation, and that this property comes within the definition of a congested estate, he will direct the attention of the Estates Commissioners to the landlord's offer, with a view to the opening of negotiations between that body and the landlord.


No proceedings as to this estate have taken place before the Commissioners, but if the estate should come before them the matter referred to in the Question will receive their attention.
