HC Deb 09 November 1908 vol 195 c1663

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what action the Estates Commissioners propose to take with a view to the enlargement of uneconomic holdings on Kellet's estate, County Meath.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that the owners of this estate arranged to sell 100 acres in their occupation for the purpose of distribution. The Commissioners approved of the allotment of these lands amongst the smaller occupiers, but the latter refused to accept the portions offered to them.
