HC Deb 01 March 1917 vol 90 c2127
25. Mr. LUNDON

asked how much land the Congested Districts Board and the Estates Commissioners have let by conacre; and what is the average price per statute acre charged?


The Congested Districts Board are setting land in conacre at low prices from 15s. to £2 10s. per acre. Lettings are going on from day to day, and the total cannot at present be given, but it is not likely to be as large as I had hoped would be the case unless local cultivators show greater eagerness to avail themselves of the Board's offers. I have asked for a return from the Estates Commissioners. They are to a great extent tilling their own farms.

28. Mr. LUNDON

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he will now publish a full list, county by county, of all people who have applied for exemption from, the tillage scheme, together with a statement as to whether such exemptions have or have not been granted, so that landless men and labourers may know what people they may approach successfully with a view to getting land under the conacre system?


No, Sir.
