HC Deb 15 July 1909 vol 7 c2417W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners received in June, 1906, an application from James Russell, a tenant on the Maunsell property at Curraghfoile, Doon, county Limerick, asking for a separate inspection of his holding on the ground that a great portion of his farm was ruined by a mountain flood after the purchase of the estate had been completed; was his request acceded to; and, if not, will an inspector now be sent down to see the damage done by the flood and have the tenant recouped for the loss he has suffered before the purchase money is paid to the landlord?


Russell's application was received by the Estates Commissioners, and his holding was inspected. The Commissioners decided that it was security for the advance applied for, and the holding has been vested in the tenant purchaser.
