HC Deb 26 April 1910 vol 17 c257

asked if the Estates Commissioners have taken any, and, if so, what, steps for the acquiring of the untenanted lands of Garrylawn, Owens estate, Galmoy, county Kilkenny; is he aware that a number of evicted tenants and others, who are legally entitled to portions thereof, reside in this district; did the Estates Commissioners' inspector visit those lands with a view to the sale and purchase; if so, what price was the owner offered; is the estate at present set on the eleven months' system; and did the eleven months' tenants negotiate with the owner for the purchase of those lands after the Commissioners had failed to purchase?


The Estates Commissioners cannot find that any proceedings for the sale of this estate are pending before them, and they have no information as to the matters referred to in the concluding part of the question.
