§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will explain the cause of delay in the matter of the sale of the O'Brien Estate at Comakelly and Corglass, county Longford; whether he is aware that terms of purchase were agreed on by the tenants and landlord's representatives in Longford in October last, and that when in January last a tenant named Francis M'Cabe tried to have a fair rent fixed by Judge Curran the case was struck out on the ground that the estate had been sold; and can he state when this matter is likely to be closed.
§ MR. ATKINSON (for Mr. WYNDHAM)
It has not been found possible to obtain the information necessary to enable me to give a reply to this Question to-day and I must ask the hon. Member to postpone it until Monday next.
