HC Deb 13 November 1906 vol 164 c1303

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have purchased the Skeagh estate, county Cavan, of Sir Robert Hodson; and, if so, were the tenants' claims for turbary conceded by the landlord in his negotiations with the Commissioners.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they have not purchased the estate in question, but agreements for direct purchase by the tenants have been lodged with them. The purchase agreements provide that the turbary is to be vested in the landlord, but the Commissioners are not prepared to sanction such a provision, and have informed the vendor that satisfactory arrangements must be made before the sale will be sanctioned.
