HC Deb 28 April 1910 vol 17 c629

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, whether he is aware that the tenants on the late Conway estate, Mullies, county Leitrim, have petitioned the Congested Districts Board to purchase that estate; and whether, having regard to the fact that the estate is in court, and a number of decrees for arrears of rent and for possession are now pending, the Congested Districts Board would intervene with a view of purchasing the estate, and thus keeping the tenants in their homes and enlarging their holdings?


The Congested Districts Board have received the petition referred to, but it must be clearly understood that they have no power to intervene to stay proceedings for the recovery of rent due.
