Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food the reason shares on a commonage have not been attributed to a person (details supplied) in County Mayo by the Land Commission in view of the fact that they should be rightfully theirs. [1857/07]

Mary Coughlan: The commonage in question relates to a migration and voluntary re-arrangement scheme undertaken by the former Land Commission and for which I now have responsibility. According to the records in my Department there are three 1/16th shares on hands to be allotted and the person named has been offered one of these but has refused. Examination of the records does not support his contention that he is entitled to the three 1/16th shares.
A scheme to dispose of the three shares is currently being prepared and it is envisaged that this will be completed within the next few months.
