HC Deb 22 December 1916 vol 88 c1857W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, whether he is aware that the Gort Rural District Council called the attention of the Estates Commissioners to the cases of John Hartigan, Bunnasrah, Michael Keane, Carheeney, and Thomas Connolly, Killeen, tenants on the estate of Viscount Gough, Gort, county Galway, who, although occupiers of uneconomic holdings, have been refused any addition of land; and whether, before the estate passes out of the hands of the Commissioners, provision will be made to bring these tenants up to an economic standard?


All the untenanted land and turbary acquired by the Estates Commissioners on this estate for the purposes of distribution have been allotted, and the Commissioners are not in a position to make any further allotments.
