HC Deb 19 November 1908 vol 196 cc1419-20

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that Mr. John Coleman, a member of the Limerick County Council, has obtained from the Estates Commissioners, or has applied for, a portion of the untenanted lands acquired by them, together with the mansion of Style Park; will he state what is the amount of land already in Mr. Coleman's possession as tenant or hired by him for grazing under the eleven-months system; and, seeing that the transfer to such a tenant of untenanted lands which are required for evicted tenants, labourers, and small holders in the neighbourhood would be a violation of Clause 2 of the Purchase Act of 1903, will he state what action he proposes to take.


The Estates Commissioners have received an application from John Coleman to be allotted portion of the untenanted land on the Style Park estate of Major Wise, County Limerick. The Commissioners do not know what lands Coleman has in his possession for grazing or otherwise, but will make inquiries before making any allotment of the lands.
