HC Deb 19 July 1912 vol 41 cc693-4W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Congested Dis- tricts Board, at its meeting on 16th July, considered the applications for expediting the purchase of the Trinity College, Knight of Kerry, Fuller, Colomb, and F. G. Williams estates in the barony of Iveragh; and can he state what progress has been effected in these estates, respectively?


The Congested Districts Board, at the meeting referred to decided to make an offer for the purchase of the F. G. Williams estate. The Trinity College estate has been valued, and the Board expect to consider the question of making an offer for purchase at their next meeting. The Board hope to be in a position to issue an offer at an early date for the purchase of the Knight of Kerry's estate. With regard to the Fuller and Colomb estates, I would refer the hon. Member to the replies given to his previous questions regarding these properties.
