§ Mr. CULLINAN (for Mr. Duffy)
asked the Chief Secretary whether he will explain what steps have been taken by the Estates Commissioners in the way of acquiring the lands of Dartfield, the property of Mrs. Gowing; and, in view of the necessity which exists for the distribution of these lands, will he indicate the time when these lands might be dealt with?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners inform me that the lands of Dartfield appear to form portion of the Meath Hospital Estate. The papers in the case are at present in the hands of one of the Commissioners' inspectors for the preparation of a scheme for their distribution.
