HC Deb 07 October 1909 vol 11 c2339W

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that it is four years since the tenants on the Cremore estate, county Antrim, signed agreements for purchase; and whether he can state the reason for the delay in their getting possession of their farms?


The Estates Commissioners assume that the question refers to the estate of Robert A. C. Montague, Portstewart, county Londonderry. The purchase agreements in that case were lodged in February, 1906. The estate has not yet been dealt with, as it has not been reached in its order of priority.
