§ MR. FLYNN
I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether he is aware that an agreement was made early in 1888 between W. B. Leslie and A. M. Leslie, of Courtmacsherry, County Cork, landlords, and Mrs. Hanlon and Mrs. O'Connor, of Wilton, County Cork, joint tenants, for the purchase of the holding; and was the advance agreed upon between the parties sanctioned by the Land Purchase Commission; and, if so, what has been the cause of the delay in completing the transaction?
§ MR. MADDEN
The Land Commissioners report that a delay has arisen owing to the necessity for taking steps for the redemption of a head rent, and 766 subsequently through a difficulty with regard to the title. The landlords, solicitors are endeavouring to remove this difficulty.
