§ MR. ARTHUR O'CONNOR () Donegal, E.
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the estate of Sir William Style is now before the Land Commission for sale to the tenants; whether the Commissioners are aware that rights of turbary on this estate are regulated by custom; that the solicitor for the landlord submitted to the Commissioners a draft deed for approval containing terms with reference to turbary which were objected to by the; tenants; and that that deed, though approved by the Commissioners, was afterwards withdrawn; and whether any other draft has since been submitted for the approval of the Commissioners; and, if so, whether they will withhold their sanction until satisfied that the tenants assent to its terms in respect of turbary.
§ MR. ATKINSON (for Mr. G. W. BALFOUR)
The answers to the first and second paragraphs are in the affirmative. The draft of a second deed, the terms of which with reference to turbary were, I am informed, agreed to by the solicitors acting on behalf of both the landlord and the tenants respectively, has been submitted to and approved of by the Land Commissioners. This deed has not, 389 however, been yet lodged with the Commissioners duly executed.
