§ MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state when the arrangements, signed by tenants to purchase their holdings on the Blacker-Douglas estate, were lodged by the land lord with the Estates Commissioners; whether the sale has been sanctioned or completed; and, if not, whether he can state when it will be finished.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The purchase agreements relating to this estate were lodged with the Estates Commissioners on the 3rd January, 1906. The case will be dealt with in order of priority, but the Commissioners cannot at present say when the proceedings will be completed.
