HC Deb 28 July 1910 vol 19 c2517W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he can state whether the Pakenham-Mahon estate, near the town of Roscommon, was offered a considerable time since for sale to the Estates Commissioners; what progress has been made with the negotiations; and when the estate is likely to pass into the possession of the occupiers?


The Congested Districts Board, to whom this estate has been transferred by the Estates Commissioners, inform me that the estate is about to be inspected, and an offer for purchase will be issued as soon as practicable. At this stage the Board are unable to say when the lands will be sold to the tenants.
