§ MR. THOMAS O'DONNELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what steps have been taken by the Congested Districts Board for Ireland with a view to purchase the Rae Estate, Keel, county Kerry; what are the instructions given to the engineer who, since February last, has spent a few days on the estate; when will he be required to furnish his report; and whether he will be instructed to secure the voluntary co-operation of the tenants in preparing his report.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The Board is still in correspondence with the owners of this property. When it is in possession of certain information for which it has applied to the owners, it will consider the question of the purchase of the estate. The Chief Inspector his not yet visited the estate.
