MR. P. O'BRIEN
On behalf of the hon. Member for the St. Patrick Division of Dublin, I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (1) whether his attention has been drawn to the sale of the Martalstown Estate; and (2) whether the tenants in occupation are entitled to the right of preference in case of the sale by the landlord?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
My attention has been drawn to the proceedings on the Martalstown Estate, co. Limerick, which, presumably, is the property referred to. The question raised by the second paragraph is not one on which the Executive Government can express any opinion.
