Vol. 136 No. 2

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Vesting of County Kildare Holdings.

asked the Minister for Lands whether, with a view to facilitating tenants who propose to erect houses on their holdings, he will indicate when it is intended to vest the holdings on the Logan estate at Allenwood, North County Kildare.

Vesting is at present under consideration and it is expected that most of the allotments will be vested at an early date.

Would the Minister give special consideration to speedy vesting where it can be shown to the Land Commission that the purpose of vesting is the erection of houses on the land in question; or can the Minister say whether the vesting will be completed in the next month or two?

Yes, I will bear the Deputy's representations in mind.

Could the Minister sayif the vesting of the entire estate will be completed in a couple of months?

There are three cases outstanding and on further inquiries I am informed that further proceedings will be necessary before they can be completed. Two of them hold B.O.H. cottages and the third is a small holding to which the title is not clear. I will look into the matter further.

Will the Minister bear in mind that the purpose of the vesting is to enable houses to be erected on the estate?
