HC Deb 02 September 1909 vol 10 cc740-1W

asked the Chief Secretary when the estate of Colonel A. H. Lefroy, Carnglass, county Longford, will be reached in its order of priority; and whether, when reached, an inspection will be made with a view to having included therein John Gilroy, Patrick Rogers, James Quinn, Anne Logan, and Pat Dunne, sub-tenants, to whom sale was refused?


The Estates Commissioners inform me that there are two estates belonging to Colonel Lefroy now pending for sale under the Irish Land Act, 1903, the purchase agreements having been lodged on 4th April, 1907, and 27th October, 1908, respectively. When the estates are being dealt with in their proper order of priority, which will not be for some time to come, the cases of the sub-tenants will be inquired into.
