HC Deb 15 June 1915 vol 72 cc548-9W

asked the Chief Secretary whether, before vesting the Digby estate, Geashill, King's County, the Estates Commissioners will receive the deputation appointed by the tenants, who called at their office on the 2nd June last and were denied an interview?


I am informed that the deputation which waited on the Estates Commissioners on the 2nd instant gave no previous notice of their intention to call. They were, however, seen by the Secretary to the Commissioners, who assured them that their representations would be borne in mind when the estate in question, in priority to which were others involving purchase money estimated at six and a half million pounds, came to be dealt with. The question of receiving the deputation will then be considered by the Commissioners.
