§ CAPTAIN CRAIG (Down, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can explain the cause of the delay on the part of the Estates Commissioners in the completion of the sale of Crosslee's estate, in the Cookstown Union, County Tyrone; and when is it expected that the matter will be wound up and the townlands of Tullydonnell and Tolvin vested in the tenants.
§ MR. T. W. RUSSELL
The Estates Commissioners made an offer for the purchase of the estate of Porter and Crosslee which the Land Judge did not feel able to accept. The Commissioners have directed a further inspection of the estate with the view of reconsidering their offer, and it is anticipated that the matter will again come before the Land Judge during the coming sittings of the Court.
