HC Deb 16 June 1910 vol 17 cc1531-2W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that Charles Nugent Humble purchased in 1895, under the Ashbourne Acts, six holdings on the estate of his brother, Sir John Nugent Humble, and obtained advances from the Irish Land Commission amounting to £2,823, and that he is now the registered owner of the holdings; whether Charles Nugent Humble has lodged applications for advances for the purchase of other holdings on the same estate under the Land Act of 1903; and what are the amounts of the advances applied for and the name of the lands in respect of which the advances are sought?


I understand that the statements in the first part of the question with regard to the purchases made by Mr. Charles Nugent Humble in 1895 are correct. He has signed agreements under the Irish Land Act, 1903, for the purchase of four holdings which he holds as tenant on the estate of Sir John Nugent Humble. The names of the lands and the advances applied for are as follows: Ballinahassany North, £521; Deelish Mountain, £266; Ballynaskehamore, £1,471; Loughariska, £409. The estate will be dealt with in order of priority, but its turn has not yet come.
