HC Deb 01 November 1911 vol 30 c966W

asked how many applications have been received by the Estates Commissioners under Sub-sections (2), (3), and (4) of Section 20, 9 Edw. 7; have any sales been effected under this Section; and, if so, will he state when?


The Section to which the hon. Member refers is a definition Section, and applications are not lodged under it. The Estates Commissioners are not in a position at present to say how many cases now pending before them, a very large number of which have not been reached in their order of priority to be dealt with, are governed by the Section.
