HC Deb 18 August 1911 vol 29 cc2271-2W

asked whether the Congested Districts Board has been in communication with Mr. Rupert Colomb with reference to the sale of his property in Dunkerron, near Kenmare; and, if so, can he state the nature of Mr. Colomb's reply?


The Congested Districts Board communicated with Mr. Rupert Colomb inquiring whether he was willing to negotiate for a sale of his property near Kenmare through them, but up to the present he has not intimated his willingness to do so.


asked whether, in view of the fact that on the Barclay estate, Clondrinagh, in the parish of Coolmeen, county Clare, abatement of rents has been refused and proposals to purchase on behalf of the tenants rejected, whereas the neighbouring estates of Carhureagh, Birrinfasla, Coolmen, and Derrynalicka have been purchased, he will consider that this is a case for the exercise of the compulsory powers of the last Land Act?


The Congested Districts Board have no information regarding the estate referred to, and no proceedings are pending before the Estates Commissioners for its sale under the Land Purchase Acts.
