§ MR. VINCENT KENNEDY
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state what is the position of the sale of the Lieutenant-Colonel William C. Lloyd, H. W. Lloyd, Major Alfred Lloyd, K. Lloyd, Arthur B. Lloyd, and Major Frederick C. Lloyd estate, near Arva, county Cavan; when were purchase agreements filed; how many tenants signed these agreements; when was this estate inspected; how many evicted tenants are there on the said estate; what amount of untenanted land is on the landlord's hands; and how many tenants are still outside this sale.
The Estates Commissioners inform me that twenty-four agreements for purchase by tenants on the estate in question were lodged with them on 16th March last. An agreement for the purchase of a parcel containing thirty-two acres has also been lodged, and the only untenanted land included in the sale consists of three acres. From the schedule of tenancies it would appear that there are still seventeen holdings for which agreements for purchase have not yet been received. Four applications from persons claiming reinstatement as evicted tenants on the estate have been received. The estate has not yet been inspected, and, having regard to its order of priority, may not be inspected for a considerable time.
