§ MR. LUNDON (Limerick, E.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieu-tenant of Ireland can he say whether as yet applications to carry out the sale to the tenants on the part of Count De Salis, around Grange, Loughgur, and Knockroe, county Limerick, have been made to the Estates Commissioners; is he aware that on this estate there are close on 400 acres of untenanted land, hold until lately by Mr. Dickson and Mr. Chatterton, on which labourers, evicted tenants, and poor farmers' sons could be quartered; will he and the Estates Commissioners take precautions that no extensive tenants already holding largo farms get this untenanted land by fine for the tenant right; and, if so, that no sale of the estate be sanctioned.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that no application in respect of the sale of this estate has yet been made to them. In the event of the estate coming before then the Commissioners will consider the matters indicated in the Question.
