§ MR. J. MURPHY (Kerry, E.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland, whether the Congested District Board have placed before the Estates Commissioners the offer made to them as to the sale of the congested districts on the Kenmare estate, County Kerry; whether they have also handed over to them any reports or inquiries made by them; and whether the Estates Commissioners have taken, or propose to take, any steps to deal with the congested portions of the estate in accordance with the powers vested in them.
(Answered by Mr. Cherry.) The reply to the first two parts of the Question is in the negative. No proceedings for the sale of the congested portion of the Kenmare estate have been instituted before the Estate Commissioners, and they have therefore taken no steps in the matter.
