§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the delay that has occurred in proceedings for the sale of O'Brien and another estate in Comakelly and Corglass, County Longford, he can direct the Land Commission to obtain a request for a sale of these lands to the tenants.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
This estate is being administered in the Court of the land judge, where the proceedings have not yet reached the stage at which a request for an inspection under the 40th Section of the Act of 1896 could be issued. The Land Commission has no power to take the initiative in obtaining a request.
