HC Deb 14 December 1906 vol 167 cc830-1

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether negotiations are pending for the sale of the Nash estate, Drumnacross, Kilosnet, County Leitrim; whether he is aware that the agent, Mr. Hewton, refuses to give a tenant named Michae M'Goldrick turbary, although turbary is available on the estate, even for tenants living on adjoining estates; and whether he will request the Estates Commissioners not to complete the sale until they have investigated the complaint made by M'Goldrick.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that purchase agreements in respect of the estate referred to have been lodged with them but the tenant named in the Question is not one of the proposed purchasers. The Commissioners will, before sanctioning the sale, have due inquiry made into the matter mentioned in the Question.
