HC Deb 18 December 1908 vol 198 c2243

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state if the estate of Walter Morrogh, at Killahan, North Kerry, has been offered for sale to the Estates Commissioners; whether any agreements have been lodged by the landlord or his solicitor with the Estates Commissioners; and whether the Estates Commissioners will send an inspector on the holdings of a number of the tenants, who will not buy at the price demanded by the landlord, before a sale is sanctioned.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The owner has instituted proceedings for the sale of this estate to the tenants, and has lodged purchase agreements signed by some of them. When the estate is being inspected in its proper turn, the inspector will inquire into the cases of those tenants who have not signed purchase agreements.
