§ Mr. JOHN ROCHE
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the estate of Sir H. Grattan-Bellew in the district of Moylough, county Galway, has yet been purchased by the Estates Commissioners; and, if so, has all the land usually let on the 11 months' system been included for the benefit of the small holders?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners are in negotiation for the purchase of this estate, which comprises a considerable area of tenanted and untenanted land. The purchase has not yet been completed.
