HC Deb 06 March 1913 vol 49 cc19-20W

asked the Chief Secretary if the Estates Commissioners have yet acquired the untenanted land on the

Stafford Delmege estate, at Knocklong, county Limerick; and, if so, will it be distributed this year?


The reply to the first paragraph of the question is in the negative. This estate is the subject of proceedings for sale direct by the owner to the tenants, and the owner included in the proceedings some 50 acres of untenanted land. The Estates Commissioners have had an inspection made of this untenanted land and have communicated to the owner their preliminary estimate of the amount which they will be prepared to advance for it, and they are at present in correspondence with him on the subject.
