HC Deb 06 April 1909 vol 3 c920
Captain CRAIG

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state if any land has been acquired by the Congested Districts Board or the Estates Commissioners in the neighbourhoods of Hillsborough, Dromore, and Tullyniskey, county Down, for the purpose of settling evicted tenants; and, if so, whether the evicted tenants will be from the South and West of Ireland, or whether these allotments will be allocated only to evicted tenants in Ulster?


The Estates Commissioners have given notice in the "Dublin Gazette" of their intention to acquire certain lands in county Down under the Evicted Tenants Act. These lands, if acquired, will be utilised for the purpose of providing holdings for tenants who have been evicted from farms in Ulster.
