HC Deb 28 February 1906 vol 152 c1137
MR. LUNDON (Limerick E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, can he say whether Lord Dunraven has sold his estates around Adare and Groom, county Limerick, to the tenants on it; and, if so whether the sale has been carried out directly between the landlord and the tenants, or through the Estates Commissioners; and what were the terms as to the number of years' purchase on the various classes of tenancy, whether on first term or second term rents.


The Estates Commissioners are negotiating with Lord Dunraven for the purchase of his estates, comprising about 11,694 acres, in the district referred to; but, until those negotiations have concluded, it is obviously undesirable to state the proposed terms of purchase.
