Vol. 136 No. 2

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Resumption of County Mayo Holding.

asked the Minister for Lands if he would state if the Land Commission have instituted proceedings for the resumption of the Conroy holding, Knappaghmanagh, Westport, County Mayo; and, if so, the stage reached and the latest decision in the matter.

Proceedings were instituted for the resumption of this holding but were subsequently withdrawn.

Could the Minister say if a petition against resumption was lodged in that case and, if so, was the petition heard?

Yes, there was a petition against resumption and the commissioners decided, having heard the case, to withdraw from the proceedings and to refuse the tenants' application for an exchange.
