§ MR. ROCHE (Galway, E.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the attention of the Estates Commissioners has been directed to the, estate of William Thomas Galway, deceased, situated in the county of Galway, and now for sale in the Land Judge's Court; and whether they have 1178 made a request under the Land Purchase Act of 1903 to the Land Judge for the purchase of this estate; and, if not, whether it is intention of the Commissioners to do so and thus give the tenants an opportunity of becoming the owners of their farms.
(Answered by Mr. Atkinson.)On the 2nd February the Commissioners issued to the Land Judge a request under the 7th Section of the Act with respect to this estate. The matter came before the Land Judge on the 7th instant, when directions were given to have the rental, which was settled many years ago, resettled.
