§ Mr. SCANLAN
asked the Chief Secretary whether the Congested Districts Board have acquired, or propose to acquire, for the purpose of relieving congestion in the district, a farm belonging to Colonel Hewett, on the Jones estate, situate at Rathlee, between Enniscrony and Easkey, county Sligo; and whether he can state to what purpose this farm is at present devoted, and by whom, and on what title, the farmhouse and buildings are occupied?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Congested Districts Board have not acquired the farm in question, but representations have been made to them that it should be acquired, and the matter will be brought before the Board at their next meeting. I have no information as to how the farm is now held or used.
