To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state when the agreements signed by the tenants on the estate of Mr. T. W. Sands, situate near Tarbert, North Kerry, were lodged by the landlord with the Estates Commissioners; whether the sale has yet been sanctioned; and, if not, when will it be completed. (Answered by Mr. Birrell.) Purchase agreements for the sale of this estate were lodged with the Estates Commissioners in August, 1905, and the case will be dealt with in its proper order of priority. Other applications of prior date remain to be dealt with, and the Commissioners are not at present in a position to say when the proper turn of this particular estate will be reached.
