Questions in the Commons – Land Purchase in Kinvara District
Mr W.J. Duffy asked the Chief Secretary in the House of Commons on July 24th whether he is aware of an inspection having taken place in connection with the Blake Foster estate, Kinvara; was it offered for sale to the Congested Districts Board; has any offer been made to the trustees for its purchase; and how does the estate stand at the present time?

Mr Birrell;
This estate was offered for sale to the Congested Districts Board and has been inspected by their valuers, but the report of the valuers is not yet completed. The Board will consider the question of making an offer as soon as practicable.

Mr Duffy asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware of the number of uneconomic holdings to be found in the neighbourhood of Kinvara, Co. Galway; whether, in order to assist in the relief of this congestion, Mr Brady Murray B.A., Moydore House, Kinvara, offered some untenanted land to the Congested Districts Board; what was the extent or acreage of the untenanted land offered by Mr Murray; and when it is proposed to take up this land and prepare a scheme for its allotment?

Mr Birrell;
The Congested Districts Board are unable to state the number of uneconomic holdings in the neighbourhood of Kinvara, Co. Galway. Mr Brady Murray has offered 339 acres of untenanted land in Gort Union to the Board, and a decision will be come to regarding purchase as soon as practicable.
