HC Deb 09 March 1910 vol 14 cc1605-6W
Captain COOPER

asked the Chief Secretary if he can state when the Estates Commissioners hope to complete sales in cases where the originating agreement was lodged in July, 1908?


The Estates Commissioners are not in a position at present to say when sales for which purchase agreements were lodged on the dates mentioned may be disposed of. The state of progress will depend on the funds available for land purchase, and the extent to which vendors may avail themselves of the option given them by the Act of 1909 to take the purchase money in part stock and part cash or all in stock.
