To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Estates Commissioners are aware of the manner in which Mr. Ned Pembroke of Castleisland, county Kerry, is being treated in connection with the sale of the Headley estate; and whether they will take steps that he may be allowed to purchase his holding on the estate. (Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Estates Commissioners have received a communication from Mr. Pembroke, which will be considered when the estate in question comes before them. Up to the present no proceedings for the sale of the estate have been instituted before the Commissioners.
MR. JOHN MURPHY
