HC Deb 21 March 1906 vol 154 cc396-7
MR. DUFFY (Galway, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether any representation has been made to the Estates Commissioners by Lord Gough, in respect to the sale to the occupying tenants of their holdings on the Gough estate in and near Gort; and, if not, in view of the proceedings instituted from time to time against the tenants, leading to disorder, seizures, and disturbance, he will consider with the Estates Commissioners the propriety of communicating with Viscount Gough, with a view to arranging terms of purchase.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that no proceedings in regard to the sale of Lord Gough's Estate have come before them. The Commissioners will consider whether the circumstances of the case justify their taking any action in the matter under the recent regulations.
