HC Deb 25 April 1910 vol 17 cc198-9W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he can state the number of applications for cottages and plots of land disallowed by the inspector at the recent inquiry under the Labourers Act in Roscrea rural district; and whether he can state the grounds on which the inspector disallowed the several applications?


I understand the inspector disallowed the applications for nine cottages and one allotment. Two sites were disallowed because they were demesne land and one because the holding on which it was marked was too small. Two applicants were found to be ineligible, three had boycotted or intimidated the owners of the sites, or were otherwise undesirable, and one declined the site selected by the council. The proposed allotment was disallowed as it was two miles from the applicant's house.
