HC Deb 15 February 1917 vol 90 c809
15. Mr. HAYDEN

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the untenanted lands of Ballyfeeny and Gortlustia, in the rural district of Strokestown, county Roscommon, have been in possession of the Congested Districts Board for six years; that the former owner has been paid for these lands; that they are actually vested in the Board; and, seeing that there is a general feeling of disappointment expressed in a recent resolution of the local district council that there should be such delay in their distribution amongst the occupiers of uneconomic holdings in the neighbourhood, whether he will urge upon the Board the desirability of taking action in this matter without further delay?


The Congested Districts Board hope to dispose of these untenanted lands before the 31st March next by dividing and adding them to the tenants' holdings on the H. P. Mahon estate.
