HC Deb 26 April 1910 vol 17 c252
Captain CRAIG

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether his attention has been called to the proceedings at a meeting of tenants on the Palmer estate, held at Castlebar on the 9th instant, when a resolution was passed demanding a reduction of 25 per cent, in rents, which otherwise would be withheld from the landlord and deposited with trustees, and threatening with the odium of their fellows such tenants as would not subscribe to this resolution; and whether, under these circumstances, he will advise the Congested Districts Board to decline to receive the deputation from the said meeting until this resolution has been rescinded?


My attention has been called to the proceedings at this meeting. The resolution has not been forwarded to the Congested Districts Board, nor have they been asked to receive a deputation from the meeting.
