HC Deb 01 April 1908 vol 187 c507
MR. O'SHEE (Waterford, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether an inspector of the Estates Commissioners has inspected the holdings proposed to be sold on the estate of Sir John Keane, near Cappoquin, County Waterford, and when; whether he at the same time inspected the larger number of holdings on the estate in respect of which the offer of the landlord was refused by the tenants as unreasonable and exorbitant; and, if not, how soon he or some other inspector will be sent to do so.


The holdings for which purchase agreements have been lodged have not yet been inspected, but when the inspection takes place, the inspector will also visit and report upon the holdings in respect of which purchase agreements have not been lodged. The case will be dealt with in order of priority, but the Estates Commissioners cannot at present name a date for the inspection.
