HC Deb 15 April 1913 vol 51 c1818

asked whether Mrs. Mary Harte, of Cooladonnel, Ballaghameehan, county Leitrim, a tenant on the Wynne estate, was compelled to purchase her holding through being threatened by the agent for recovery of all arrears of rent; that, as a result of her signing the purchase agreement, a large number of tenants have a right to turbary on her land, contrary to her knowledge or desire; and that she has not a suitable pass to her farm; and whether the Estates Commissioners would consider these facts previous to vesting the estate?


The Estates Commissioners have no information as to the circumstances in which Mrs. Hart signed an agreement to purchase her holding on this estate. When the estate is being dealt with by the Commissioners in order of priority, the question of the disposal of the turbary on her holding will be considered.
