§ Mr. JOHN ROCHE
asked the Chief Secretary whether he was aware that the tenants on the Churcher estate, Castle-french, county Galway, agreed to purchase their holdings in November, 1907; and whether he could say if the estate had yet been inspected, and, if not, what was the cause of the delay?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
This estate is pending for sale to the Estates Commissioners under Section 6 of the Irish Land Act, 1903. Owing to its place on the priority list, it has not yet been inspected with a view to the Commissioners making an offer to purchase.
