§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the fact that the Estates Commissioners are bound to become public trustees for large tracts of bog sold under the Act of 1903 which are not in direct occupation of tenants, he will say if any application has been made to them to assume this position in connection with the Drummeel, county Longford, bog on the Granard Estate.
MR, ATKINSON (for Mr. WYNDHAM)
No application his been made to the 1451 Estates Commissioners in respect of this bog. If made it will be considered.
