HC Deb 14 May 1857 vol 145 cc257-8

asked the Attorney General for Ireland, "whether any steps have been taken by Her Majesty's Government, in accordance with the promise given last Session, to remove the Incumbered Estates Court from Henrietta Street to the Four Courts."


said, that the Government were anxious to redeem their pledge of removing the court, but it was found that there was not ground enough at the Four Courts for the new building. Measures were now being taken to acquire additional land for the purpose, and a Vote of £10,000 would be taken this Session as a first instalment. The building would include a new record chamber, and some other offices which were much wanted.
