§ Mr. DELANY
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the farm of Doon, estate of the late H. V. White, Stillorgan, situated near Borris-in-Ossory, Queen's County, has been acquired by the Estates Commissioners; and, if so, can he say when the farm is likely to be divided amongst the applicants?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The sale of the tenanted portion of this estate to the tenants was completed in June last. The owner has accepted the preliminary estimate of the Estates Commissioners for the purchase of the untenanted lands of Doon and Kilpurcel, and formal proceedings for their sale were instituted on the 26th February of this year. The Commissioners have approved of a scheme for the allotment of the untenanted land, but are not at present in a position to say when possession will be given to the proposed purchasers.
