HC Deb 27 March 1905 vol 143 cc1202-3
MR. HAYDEN (Roscommon, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state the dates on which the Irwin, Balf, and Goff Estates, in the county of Roscommon, on each of which there is a quantity of untenanted land, were offered to the Estates Commissioners; whether an offer has been made for them, or any of them; and, if not, will he explain the cause of the delay in acquiring these properties.


In the Irwin Estate an originating request was lodged on October 17th last, but the inspector's report has not yet been received. In the Balf Estate a request, under Section 7, was issued to the Land Judge on January 27th, 1904, and the inspector's report is now under consideration. In the Goff Estate an originating application was received on May 19th last, and it will be shortly dealt with by the Commissioners.
