§ MR. W. J. CORBET (Wicklow, E.)
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, Whether any steps have yet been taken to make the Eaton Bequest available for the purpose intended by the testatrix—namely, the establishment of a woollen factory in Wicklow?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. HOLMES) (Dublin University)
Steps are being taken to have a judicial decision as to how the Eaton Bequest ought to be applied. The delay hitherto has arisen largely from the difficulty in raising a personal representative to Miss Eaton, who died nearly 100 years ago; but this difficulty has been at length overcome, and I trust that there will now be no obstacle to proceeding with expedition.
