HC Deb 07 March 1910 vol 14 cc1158-9

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the tenants on the Kilmacumsey estate, of Elphin, county Roscommon, have applied to the Congested Districts Board for the enlargement and purchase of their holdings; whether the estate is a congested one, half the tenants' holdings being valued from £7 to £3; whether he is aware that there is a non-residential farm of 120 acres on the estate, the owner of which farms 500 acres of land in another district; and whether the Congested Districts Board will take steps to put an end to the congestion of this estate?


The Congested Districts Board have received a memorial from some tenants on this estate, and will cause inquiries to be made into the case in due course.
