HC Deb 27 November 1906 vol 165 c1442
MR. DELANY (Queen's County, Ossory)

; I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether negotiations for sale of the Stubber Estate, Aughaboe, Queen's County, to the tenants are in progress; whether he is aware that there are 800 acres of untenanted land upon the estate which the landlord proposes to let on lease of thirty-one years to the eleven months holders, and that the tenants have requested that the untenanted land should be sold to the Estates Commissioners for the settlement of evicted tenants and redistribution amongst small occupiers in the locality; and can he say what course the Estates Commissioners propose to adopt in this case.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that they have no knowledge of any negotiations for the sale of the estate in question, nor of the circumstances of the estate. No proceedings for sale have been instituted before them, and no application from the tenants in respect of the untenanted land can be traced.
