Proceedings for the acquisition of this estate are in the final stages but possession has not yet been obtained by the Land Commission.More Button

The Land Commission have no proceedings at present for the acquisition of these lands, but I have asked them to examine the matter.More Button

I am hopeful that it will be possible to allot at least part of this estate in the coming year. The claims of all local applicants will be fully considered before allotment takes place.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers (resumed). - Acquisition of Galway Estates.

I would refer the Deputy to my reply to a question on 10th July last regarding this estate. The further inquiries which I have asked the Land Commission to make in connection with these lands have not...More Button

I would refer the Deputy to my reply to his question on 23rd May last in connection with these lands. The formulation of schemes for the division of this estate and the adjoining estate of Dalystown ...More Button

You had. One of Deputy Moylan's colleagues put down what I considered a very useful question, a question that demanded a rather full statement. If it was Deputy Moher who put down the question, I mu...More Button

Not beyond saying that if it was Deputy Moher who was responsible for that question then he has an insight into forestry that gives the lie to what Deputy Moylan has just said. Let me say I am quite...More Button

I want to ask the Deputy a further question. What can a separate Ministry, a Forestry Commission or Bord na Móna do that has not been done already?More Button

It is not the Department of Lands that is to blame. No doubt each of us could come back from our graves in 50 years' time and be able to blame the Government in power now.More Button

And has been due to Governments because the truth is that, while a great deal of criticism is levelled at officials of the Forestry Division, when the Government decided in 1948 to expand forestry, be...More Button

——by giving them sweeping powers of acquisition. Debate adjourned.More Button
