§ CAPTAIN DONELAN (Cork, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what is the cause of the delay in advancing the purchase-money of the estate of Dr. McBride, Dungourney, County Cork, the sale of which, to the tenants, under the Ashbourne Act, was sanctioned nearly three years ago?
MR. J. MORLEY
The Land Commissioners report that the cause of delay is that the solicitor for the vendor failed to take the necessary steps to complete the sales, and that upon his being served on the 4th ult. with a notice that the eases would he dismissed for delay, he lodged the final schedule of incumbrances and the draft vesting orders. It rests with him to complete the proceedings and obtain the advances.
