§ Mr. DORIS
asked whether the Congested Districts Board has yet made an offer for the purchase of the estate of Brown and Owens, situate at Ballyglass, county Mayo, of which the maps and other necessary documents were lodged with the Board on 1st May with an intimation of the landlords' willingness to sell the estate; and, if not, can he state the cause of the delay?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Congested Districts Board will have this estate inspected and an offer made as soon as practicable having regard to the prior claims of other estates. No avoidable delay has occurred.
