§ Mr. WILLIAM O'BRIEN
asked whether Mr Richard W. Cooper has expressed his readiness to sell his estate at Ballinrea, Douglas, county Cork, to the Estates Commissioners, including untenanted lands for the provision of holdings for the evicted tenants on the estate; and, if so, what prospect is there of the Estates Commissioners accepting his offer and arranging for the reinstatement of the evicted tenants?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners have had a preliminary inspection made of the lands referred to, and have communicated to the owner their estimated price. If he institutes proceedings for sale the question of the reinstatement of the evicted tenants will be dealt with by the Commissioners.
