§ MR. EDWARD MITCHELL (Fermanagh. N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that some years ago two holdings in the townlands of Knockma-noul and Drumconnis, near Rallinamal-lard, in the county of Fermanagh, were sold to the tenants under the Land Commission and that the landlord has not yet received the purchase money, although the tenants are paying their instalments to the Land Commission; and, if so, will he state the cause of this delay.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The sum advanced for the purchase of these holdings was £375. The guarantee deposits amount to £79, and the balance was absorbed in the redemption of head rents, costs of sale, and payment of charges affecting the lands sold. No residue remained for the vendor, who remains in occupation of the remainder of the property.
