§ Mr. P. WHITE
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland when it is proposed to divide the Reynell estate, at Lobinstown, county Meath; and whether the Estates Commissioners are aware that there are several labourers with large families in the district anxious to take portion temporarily and cultivate it for food production which is needed in the locality?
§ Mr. A. SAMUELS
The estate referred to is the subject of proceedings for direct sale under the Irish Land Act, 1903. It1124W has not yet been reached in order of priority on the Register of Direct Sales for cash. When the estate is being dealt with the wants and circumstances of small occupiers and labourers in the district will be borne in mind in connection with the allotment of such untenanted land as the Estates Commissioners may be able to acquire for purposes of distribution.
