§ Mr. SCANLAN
asked the Chief Secretary if he is in a position to state whether the Congested Districts Board have yet purchased any lands in county Sligo for sub-division amongst the tenants of congested holdings and others entitled to such lands; and, if not, when will the operations of the Board commence in this county?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Congested Districts Board have purchased 3,992 acres of un-tenanted land in county Sligo under the 1704 Land Acts of 1896 and 1903 and have disposed of nearly all of it. They have not yet purchased any lands in the county under the Act of 1909.
