HC Deb 14 February 1911 vol 21 c1015W

asked whether a small number of the tenants on the estate of Robert White, of Dromahair, county Leitrim, who had together with all the other tenants agreed to the terms of purchase and signed purchase agreements two years ago, have been deprived of the benefits of the Land Act through their agreements not being lodged with the Estates Commissioners; and whether, before taking over this estate, the Commissioners will inquire into the facts of the case?


The Estates Commissioners inform me that purchase agreements have been lodged in respect of fifty-eight holdings on the estate referred to. When the estate is being inspected due inquiry will be made as regards the eight holdings in respect of which no purchase agreements have been lodged.
