HC Deb 28 June 1909 vol 7 cc196-7W

asked the Chief Secretary if he can say whether, if the case of the eight or nine future tenants on the Knight of Glin's estate, at Glin, who refused to sign the agreements to purchase on the ground that they were not getting from the landlord satisfactory 'terms, is considered by the inspector of the Estates Commissioners to be reasonable, and that the purchase price is agreed on between themselves and the landlord, they will be included in the sale of the estate with the other tenants whose agreements for purchase were lodged in July last; and whether, in such event, the landlord will receive the bonus of 12 per cent, on their purchase money?


If agreements are lodged with the Estates Commissioners, signed by the outstanding tenants, their holdings will be included in the sale and dealt with along with the holdings in respect of which agreements have already been lodged. In the case of agreements entered into subsequent to 24th November last the bonus rate is 3 per cent.
