§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state why it is that the Estates Commissioners are not taking action to acquire that part of the grazing lands of Monedarrah or Stokestown, offered to them by Mr. James W. Bond, D.L., Farragh, County Longford; if he can state the number of applications received for a share of this land; and will he request the Commissioners to proceed with the matter as soon as possible.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Estates Commissioners inform me that, so far as they can trace, the lands in question have not been offered for sale to them, nor have they had any correspondence on the subject.
§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
suggested to the right hon. Gentleman that he should repeat his inquiry about the correspondence.
