HC Deb 29 June 1899 vol 73 cc995-6
MR. P. O'BRIEN (Kilkenny)

On behalf of the hon. Member for East Clare I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what is the cause of the delay in carrying out the purchase by the tenants on the Butler Estate, County Clare.


In the case of the estate of Nicholas Butler, which is pending for sale in the Land Judge's Court, a request for an inspection of the holdings under the 40th section of the Land Act of 1896 was received by the Land Commission at the commencement of the present month. When the inspection has been carried out the Commissioners will make their report under the section referred to.
