HC Deb 22 February 1907 vol 169 c1148
MR. DOLAN (Leitrim, N.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what steps are being-taken in the Land Judge's Court with regard to the sale of the Beresford Whyte estate, Newtownmanor, county Leitrim.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The registrar of the Land Judge's Court informs me that the Estates Commissioners have lodged a request under Section 7 of the Act of 1903 for particulars of this estate with a view to considering the question of purchase. The Judge has made an order for the sale of the estate, and the abstract of title is now in course of preparation. When this has been made and approved by the Court, a survey of the estate will have to be made and the rental to be settled. These matters will occupy a considerable time, as the estate is a large one. Negotiations for sale cannot, therefore, be entered upon at present.
