HC Deb 19 February 1907 vol 169 cc718-9
MR. C. MACVEIGH (Donegal, E.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what is the cause of the delay on the part of the Estates Commissioners in sending an inspector to inspect and report on the sale of the estate of Mr. John Leslie Beers at Corkey, †See (4) Debates, clxvii., 1045. county Donegal, the agreements for purchase of which were entered into between the landlord and tenants in February, 1905; and if he can state when the sale to the tenants is likely to be completed.


The Estates Commissioners inform me that an inspection of this estate will not be necessary, seeing that the purchase money of the two holdings which comprise it falls within the zones. The Commissioners have directed a survey of the boundaries, and are dealing with the case in order of priority, but cannot state precisely when the sale will be completed.
