§ MR. BLAKE
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, Whether he is aware that the Rules for working "The Settled Land Act, 1882," which came into operation in Ireland on the 1st of January last, have not yet been issued, and that, consequently, persons desirous of taking advantage of the provisions of that Act have been hitherto debarred from doing so, to their serious inconvenience and expense; and, whether he can state when these Rules are likely to be issued, and who is responsible for the delay?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. PORTER),
in reply, said, that the Rules under the Settled Land Act had not yet been issued, as the Judges, under whose consideration they had been, had been out of town. They would be presented immediately on their return.
