§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND (Clare, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to 563 the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state what is the delay in the sale of the Neptune Blood estate, county Clare.
The Estates Commissioners inform me that there has been no undue delay in this case. The documents were lodged in June last, and an inspection of the estate has since been directed. As soon as the inspector's report has been received and considered the Commissioners will be in a position to make an offer to the Land Judge for the purchase of the estate.
