HC Deb 06 July 1904 vol 137 c776

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland to state the present position of the negotiations for the sale of the O'Brien Estate at Corglass and Cornakelly; and whether, in view of the delay in completing this sale, the Estates Commissioners will apply to Judge Ross for a request to issue under the 7th Section of the Act of 1903.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) I am informed by the registrar of the Land Judge's Court that the notice in Form 10 prescribed by the rules of 10th January, 1902, is about to be served. The solicitor having carriage of the sale is also acting for the tenants, and this would seem to afford a guarantee that no unnecessary delay will take place in bringing about a sale. The case will not be lost sight of by the Land Judge.
