HC Deb 29 March 1909 vol 3 cc163-4W

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland when the Estates Commissioners propose to distribute the balance of untenanted land on the Hussey estate, Eathkerry, county Meath; and whether, having regard to the dissatisfaction caused by the manner in which they distributed some lands in county Meath, and the public unrest caused by their giving land to people to whom the Act of 1903 never intended it should be given, they will, in this case, have regard to the prior claims of the labourers and occupiers of uneconomic holdings in the district?


I have already informed the hon. Member, in reply to a question asked by him on 7th December last, that the residue of these lands was being distributed to small occupiers. I am not aware of the existence of the alleged dissatisfaction and unrest.
