§ Mr. LYNCH
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, in the case of the Kiltane farm, in the union of Ballyvaughan county Clare, Mr. T. II. Blackhall has offered to sell the farm to the Estates Commissioners or the Congested Districts Board, and whether the landlord is willing to sell to the Congested Districts Board the whole estate, including the Kiltane farm; and whether, in the event of the landlord's refusal to sell, the Congested Districts Board will avail itself of the provisions for compulsory purchase in the Land Act of 1909?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
Mr. T. H. Blackhall has offered to sell to the Congested Districts Board his leasehold interest in the farm referred to, but has declined to sell the whole estate. The Board are at present considering what action they will take in reference to this and some other similarly circumstanced estates in county Clare.
