To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the untenanted lands, on the Blacker-Douglas estate at Tulli-hinal, North Kerry, have been bought by the Estates Commissioners; and, if so, when will they be divided amongst the poor people of the district.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) These lands have not been bought by the Estates Commissioners, but are being sold by the vendor to persons coming within Section 2 of the Irish Land Act, 1903, who will sign purchase agreements at prices estimated by the Commissioners.
