§ Mr. LUNDON
asked what is the cause of the delay in issuing vesting orders on the estate of Helena M. Howley (No. H. 173/4), county Limerick, the agreements for which were lodged on 13th February, 1906, and the lands inspected in June, 1909; how soon will the sale be wound up; and will the estate be paid for this year, thus relieving tenants from the payment of interest?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
This estate is the subject of proceedings for sale direct by the owner to the tenants under the Irish Land Act, 1903. It is on the principal register of direct sales, and the Estates Commissioners anticipate that it will be reached in order of priority to be dealt with during the financial year commencing 1st April.
