HC Deb 21 March 1910 vol 15 cc910-1W

asked whether an application for an advance to purchase a holding on the Owens Estate, Turfarney, Rath- downey, Queen's County, has been received by the Estates Commissioners from Frank Scott; can he say on what terms Scott holds the farm, and if under a yearly tenancy, when the tenancy was created; and whether the Commissioners propose making an advance to Scott, and, if so, what amount.


The Land Commission inform me that Scott has acquired by assignment the interest of the tenant who signed the purchase agreement. The amount of the advance applied for is £2,770. It is stated in the document lodged by the vendor that the tenancy was created prior to 1881. The estate has not yet been inspected.
