HC Deb 14 December 1908 vol 198 c1276

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners can now state what steps they have taken towards acquiring the untenanted lands on the Leader estate, Dromagh, County Cork; and whether, in view of the necessity of acquiring land for the reinstatement of evicted tenants of the locality, the enlargement of present uneconomic holdings, and the securing of suitable plots for deserving labourers under the recent Acts relating to these classes of the working population, the Commissioners will do all in their power to expedite proceedings on this estate.


The Estates Commissioners are in negotiation with the owner of these lands.
