HC Deb 25 March 1907 vol 171 c1481

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that in the matter of Rowe's Estate, where negotiations for a sale have been proceeding for the last three years between the tenants and the Land Judge's Court, and where inspection by the Land Commission was made over twelve months ago, nothing has since been done by either the Land Commission or the Land Judge's Court to complete the sale to the tenants; and whether he will bring this case before the attention of the Land Commission.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) I am informed that the necessary documents under Section 7 of the Act of 1903 were lodged with the Estates Commissioners on 1st May last. The Commissioners have since had the estate inspected, and hope to be in a position shortly to make an offer to the Land Judge for the purchase of the property.
