HC Deb 26 February 1906 vol 152 c798

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, whether the Estates Commissioners will refuse to sanction an advance for the purchase of Ballykinley farm, county Cork (forming the estate of Mr. Palms Spread Morgan, a lunatic), by Captain Jonathan Morgan, remainder man and heir in succession, and will take such steps as may be in their power to bring about the reinstatement of the former tenant, Mr. James J. Greene, evicted in 1889, and who now seeks to become the purchaser of his old holding under the provisions of The Land Purchase (Ireland) Act, 1903.


An agreement for the purchase of the holding in question by Captain Jonathan Morgan, described as holding under a Court lease, dated December, 1904, was lodged with the Estates Commissioners on the 30th January, 1906. The Commissioners will inquire fully into the circumstances before sanctioning the advance.
