§ MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state when the agreements entered into by the tenants on the Crosbie Estate, at Ballyheigal, were filed with the Estates Commissioners; and when will the lands be vested in the tenants.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that the purchase agreements in respect of this estate were lodged with them in June, 1904. The vesting of the holdings in the tenants has been stayed pending the decision of the Judicial Commissioner on a question as to the legality of adding arrears of rent to the purchase money of a holding.
