§ MR. F. MEEHAN (Leitrim, N.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners have sanctioned the sale of the estate of Mr. H. J. B. Clements, situated at Manorhamilton, County Leitrim; whether an inspector had been sent on the estate; and, if so, whether the town of Manorhamilton and the lands adjoining will be included, to complete the sale of the entire estate.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The town of Manorhamilton and the lands adjoining it are not included in the estate of Mr. H. J. B. Clements for which purchase agreements have been lodged with the Estates Commissioners. The advances 67 have not yet been sanctioned, and, having regard to the date (June, 1906) at which proceedings were instituted, the estate will not be inspected for a considerable time. The exclusion from the sale of the town and lands referred to may be the subject of inquiry when the inspection takes place.
