§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the cause of the delay in the sale of the Lord Annally Estate, in Ballyvaughan and New Quay, county Clare; and how long ago it was offered to the tenants.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
Lord Annally is owner of this estate only as the representative of the late Colonel White. On the Ballyvaughan portion sales have already been effected to a number of the tenants, and will be carried out in other cases when the tenants settle their arrears of rent. The delay on the New Quay portion of the estate has been due to the settlement of the rental; this is now, 772 I believe, practically settled, and will shortly be lodged.
