HC Deb 22 April 1910 vol 16 cc2545-6W

asked the Chief Secretary if he will state what was the average price paid per acre for untenanted land acquired in county Cavan under the Evicted Tenants Act, 1907, giving the highest and lowest price per acre paid in the years 1907, 1908, and 1909, and what was the Poor Law valuation of the said lands?


The Estates Commissioners inform me that 247 acres in county Cavan were vested in them last year under the Evicted Tenants Act, 1907, the average price per acre being £11 10s. The Commissioners are unable to say what the Poor Law Valuation of the lands is, as portion of the lands is not separately valued for rating purposes. No lands in the county were vested in them during the other years mentioned in the question.
