HC Deb 03 December 1908 vol 197 c1646
MR. F. MEEHAN (Leitrim, N.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware of the White Estate at Newtownmanor, North Leitrim, having been offered for sale to the Estates Commissioners; and whether, having regard to the fact of a large portion of this estate being waste land, he would urge upon the Commissioners the necessity of purchasing this estate in order to enlarge the many small uneconomic holdings in the district.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) This estate is pending for sale in the Court of the Land Judge. The Estates Commissioners have already intimated to the Judge their estimated price for the untenanted land.
