HC Deb 27 April 1910 vol 17 cc616-7W

asked the Chief Secretary whether, in reference to the estate formerly of Dr. Foley Brew or, as next of kin, of Mrs. Marian Brownlynch, of Cohy, Kilfenora, county Clare, he can state whether the estate has been offered to the Estates Commissioners for sale; whether it was inspected by one of their staff; and, if so, whether an offer was made to Mrs. Lynch, and whether in that case the offer was accepted; whether, in the event of a price having been agreed upon, he can state the cause of delay in dealing with the estate; and whether the Estates Commissioners or the Congested Districts Board are dealing with the estate?


The Estates Commissioners inform me that in this case preliminary proceedings were instituted in their office, but the Congested Districts Board have now arranged to take over from them the purchase and resale of the estate.
