HC Deb 11 July 1906 vol 160 cc892-3

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the fact that Mr. Lionel Croasdale, whoso term of office as Assistant Sub-Commissioner recently expired, valued land for a landlord, General Lloyd, in the county of Limerick, and used an official postcard of the Land Commission, notifying the tenant Richard Sheehy, that he was to inspect the holding on a date mentioned and asking him to attend, and thus led him into the belief that he was a Commissioner; and whether he will take stops to see that these official postcards be not used by any ex-Sub-Commissioner in future.


I have referred this Question to the Land Commission, who inform me that they will make enquiries into the matter.


Did the right lion. Gentleman receive the postcard?


Yes, and I have sent it to the Land Commission for their observations.
