HC Deb 02 November 1911 vol 30 cc1138-9W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that the Estates Commissioners have not yet approached the owners of the Boyd estate, at Duncormack, county Wexford; and, seeing that the Estates Commissioners received some months ago a memorial signed by the tenants on the Duncormack, Scotsland, and Weneytown portion of the estate praying them to approach the landlords with a view to the acquirement of these town-lands, on which there is a large area of untenanted land that could be distributed with much advantage to the district, if he will inquire if the Commissioners have taken any steps in this matter, and, if so, what progress has been made?


The Estates Commissioners have received the memorial referred to, and are at present making inquiries into the matter.
