§ MR. FETHERSTONHAUGH (Fermanagh, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have sanctioned the sale of parts only of the Crookenden (late Earl of Morley's) estate, county Cavan, and have allowed the vendors to omit a number of tenants who were perfectly willing to purchase on the same terms.
§ MR. CHERRY
The Estates Commissioners have had this estate inspected with the object of making an offer to purchase it. Before making such an offer, the Commissioners will deal with any question which may arise as to the proposed exclusion of certain tenants from the sale.
§ MR. VINCENT KENNEDY (Cavan, W.)
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Report of the inspector has been over two months in the hands of the Estates Commissioners?
I am not aware of that, but the Estates Commissioners have, I know, an immense amount of work to discharge at the present moment.
