§ Mr. PATRICK WHITE
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether any of the following estates have been purchased by 1295W the Estates Commissioners; and, if so, in how many cases have distribution schemes been prepared, namely, the Wade estate, Clonabraney, county Meath; the Brennan estate, Clonsillagh, county Meath; the Bond estate, Balinlough, county Meath; and the Piers estate, Clonsillagh, county Meath?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners inform me that their offer for the estate of Miss Emily M. Brennan, in county Meath, has been accepted by the owner, and that a scheme has been prepared for the distribution of the un-tenanted lands when acquired. A preliminary inspection was made of the lands of Miss Louisa Piers, in the same county, and the Commissioners furnished the owner with a preliminary estimate of the price which they would be prepared to give for the untenanted lands, but the owner has not yet instituted formal proceedings for sale. The Commissioners have not purchased the untenanted lands on the Wade estate, and they are unable to identify the Bond estate, referred to in the question as pending for sale before them.
