HC Deb 15 June 1910 vol 17 c1428W

asked whether the Congested Districts Board or the Estates Commissioners have taken any steps to acquire the large non-residential grass farm of Mount Pleasant, near Ballyglass, County Mayo, with a view to the removal of congestion and the enlargement of uneconomic holdings in the district?


The answer is in the negative. The lands of Mount Pleasant, on the Clanmorris Estate, to which the hon. Member presumably refers, were purchased under the Irish Land Acts, and were vested in the tenants in August, 1907. No further advance can be made for the purchase of these lands, which are already subject to a land purchase annuity.
