Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Acreage of Unallotted Land.

Mr. O'Higgins

asked the Minister for Lands if he will state the acreage of land held by the Land Commission and not yet allotted to tenants.

Apart from areas of bog, mountain and waste land, the Land Commission have on hands some 20,000 acres of agricultural land on estates acquired under the Land Acts, 1923-50. This area varies from day to day according as estates are acquired and new allotments made.
