HC Deb 27 November 1906 vol 165 c1447
MR. LUNDON (Limerick, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that negotiations for the sale and purchase of the Bathurst property in Cappamore, county Limerick, have been for some time in progress between the owner and the tenants; is he aware that there are, beside the rural tenants, a body of town tenants who are anxious to purchase their holdings whilst the sale of the estate is now going on; and will he take steps so that the Estates Commissioners may put themselves in communication with the agent of the estate with a view of having the town tenants included in the general sale.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they are unable to identify the property referred to from the particulars given in the Question. They add, however, that it is not their practice to insist upon the inclusion of a town or village in an estate which is the subject of proceedings for direct sale from a landlord to his tenants.
