HC Deb 01 December 1909 vol 13 cc488-9
Mr. PATRICK O'BRIEN (for Mr. Thomas F. Smyth)

asked on what terms the Irish Land Commission are prepared to sell the estate of the late W. B. C. Ruthven, situate in the Mohill rural district, county Leitrim, to the tenants; and if the sale will be carried out soon, particularly as the Land Commission, who hold a mortgage on the estate, decreed several of the tenants at the October quarter sessions for arrears of rent due?


The Land Commission have only recently been able to take the final steps necessary to put them in a legal position to deal with this estate, and are now quite prepared to consider offers from the tenants for its purchase.
