HC Deb 14 December 1908 vol 198 c1235

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state whether the Earl of Erne has sold portion of his estate to his tenants in the townlands of Knockninny and Glenawley under the 1903 Act; does this include his entire estate; and, if not, will the fact be carefully borne in mind by the Estates Commissioners when this estate is mature for inspection.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that the Earl of Erne has instituted proceedings for the sale to his tenants of certain lands, including those mentioned in the Question. The Commissioners are not at present in a position to say whether the entire estate is included in the proposed sale.
