HC Deb 22 February 1907 vol 169 c1149

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland how far the negotiations for the sale of the Tottenham estate, Glenfarne, county Leitrim, have proceeded; what is the cause of the delay; and what steps are being taken with regard to the evicted tenants.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners have had this estate inspected with a view to purchase, and are at present in communication with the Land Judge and the vendor's solicitors as to the provision of turbary for the tenants. When this question has been settled, the Commissioners hope to make an offer for purchase to the Land Judge and to deal with the case of the evicted tenants.
