To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland under what section of the Land Act of 1903 the Estates Commissioners advanced over £4,000 to Mr. Tiernan, to purchase land which he held on the eleven months system on the estate of the Trustees of Hussey, situate at Rathkenny, County Meath.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners inform me that Tiernan held 19 acres as a tenant on the Hussey estate. This holding with the additional land referred to were sold to him under Section (1) (a,) the first proviso of subsection (2) of the same section, and under Section 5 of the Irish Land Act, 1903.
