HC Deb 01 December 1909 vol 13 cc489-90
Mr. PATRICK O'BRIEN (for Mr. Duffy)

asked what reasons the Estates Commissioners assign for giving a plot of accommodation land to Johanna Hayes, district nurse, Athenry, and refusing to give any accommodation land to Patrick Fox, Church-street, a man with eight in family, and Christy Daly, of Northgate-street, with six in family, whereas Messrs. Daly and Fox purchased their houses and the district nurse has not purchased the house which she occupies?


The allotment referred to was made by the Estates Commissioners in the exercise of their discretion. The hon. Member appears to be under a misapprehension in stating that Fox and Daly have purchased their holdings in the town of Athenry.
