HC Deb 15 February 1898 vol 53 c641
MR. GILHOOLY (Cork Co., W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (1) whether Judge Ross has sanctioned the sale of Beach to a brother of the Receiver on the White Estate, Bantry; and, if so, whether competition was invited at the sale; and, (2) what is the cause of delay of the sale of the agricultural holdings on the White Estate for which an order has been made by Judge Ross?


The Land Judge has not yet accepted Dr. Bird's proposal to purchase the lands of Beach. Competition was not invited at this sale. As regards the second paragraph, the Land Judge does not consider that the circumstances of the White Estate are such as to render desirable, at present, the issue of a request for inspection pursuant to the 40th Section of the Act of 1896.
