HC Deb 27 March 1907 vol 171 cc1774-5
MR. HAYDEN (Roscommon, S.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether arrangements have been made by the Estates Commissioners to purchase the Scott and Cleaver estate, in the county Roscommon; how long is it since the offer was made; whether the estate has yet been inspected, and, if so, what was the result.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that proceedings for the direct sale of this estate by the owners to the tenants were instituted before them in June, 1905. The estate has not yet been inspected, but will be inspected as soon as its turn is reached.
