HC Deb 12 February 1858 vol 148 c1262

said, he wished to ask the Attorney General for Ireland Whether he is prepared to state the course which the Government intended to take relative to the Incumbered Estates Court?


said, it was the intention of the Government to introduce very shortly a Bill to perpetuate the system under which the Incumbered Estates were disposed of in Ireland. There would be other provisions in the Bill to facilitate the transfer of land, and to extend the provisions of the existing law so as to include the sale of Unincumbered Estates. He had received the draught of the Bill from Ireland, and he hoped to be able to introduce it the week after next.
