HC Deb 07 June 1915 vol 72 c86W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the Digby Estate, Geashill, King's County, is about being vested; and can he say what steps the Estates Commissioners propose taking with reference to the untenanted lands of Ballydownan and Cappyroe, which were on the landlords' hands at the time of the I sale, and for which a repeated public request has been made for their division amongst the uneconomic holders in the locality?


The purchase money involved in the estates standing in priority to this one on the Principal Register of Direct Sales (All Cash), amounts to about six and a half million pounds, and it cannot, therefore, for some time come before the Estates Commissioners, who are not in a position at present to make any statement in regard to the last part of the question.
