HC Deb 13 May 1907 vol 174 c599

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether it has been brought to the notice of the Estates Commissioners that the agent on the estate of Mrs. Acheson, situate at Derwana, barony of Dromahair, county Leitrim, having offered twenty and a half years' purchase and half a year's rent as terms of sale, subsequently withdrew his offer and issued processes against the tenants; and will the Estates Commissioners consider the advisability of intervening.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners have, in pursuance of the Lord-Lieutenant's regulations, offered their services as conciliators in this case, but have not yet heard whether the owner is willing that they should intervene in the matter.
