HC Deb 30 March 1910 vol 15 cc1301-2

asked the Chief Secretary whether the Estates Commissioners have made arrangements for the resale of the Stylepark estate, in county Limerick; whether he will state to whom the house has been granted, and how much land accompanies the house; and whether this person has any other land, and, if so, how much?

The ATTORNEY-GENERAL for IRELAND (Mr. Redmond Barry)

This estate has been purchased by the Estates Com- missioners who have approved of a scheme for its allotment. No arrangements for the disposal of the house and the lands attached thereto, comprising about eighty-four acres, have yet been made by the Commissioners. They propose to advertise it for sale.


Will the right hon. Gentleman state whether it is not the policy of the Estates Commissioners not to make large grants of land to persons already in possession of land?


I am not able to give an answer to that question.
