§ MR. D. MACALEESE (Monaghan, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, has he yet been able to find if there is in existence in the county Monaghan a property called Raconfield, belonging to Mrs. Moorehead, for the sale of which to the tenants negotiations were commenced in 1896; and, if so, is there any prospect of those negotiations being completed at an early time to the satisfaction of the tenants?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
I have nothing, at present, to add to my reply to the hon. Member's previous Question of Tuesday last, when I stated that there appeared to be no estate in the county Monaghan known as the Raconfield Estate. The hon. Member now gives the name of the landlord, and further inquiry is being made into the matter, though the notice given has been too short to enable a Report to be obtained to-day.
