§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the proposed sale of 860 acres of the lands of the Cusack estate to certain persons at a figure of twenty seven and a half years purchase requires the sanction of the Estates Commissioners; and, if so, can he state when the matter is likely to be brought before them.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) This estate is administered in the Land Judge's Court. I have no information on the matters alluded to in the Question. But I learn that the solicitor having carriage of the proceedings will apply forthwith to the Land Judge for an order authorising the Estates Commissioners to issue a request under Section 7 of the Act of 1903, with a view to their making an offer for the purchase of the property.
