asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland the total amount of advances made under the Land Purchase Acts during the financial year ending on 31st March last; and how it compares with similar advances made in the previous financial year?

The total advances in all classes of sales under the Land Purchase Acts during the year ended 31st March last amounted to £8,006,010. The corresponding advances in the year ended 31st March, 1912, amounted to £7,965,066.

asked the Chief Secretary whether, in view of the fact that the maps and documents in connection with the sale of the Colomb estate, near Caherciveen, were lodged with the Congested Districts Board in December, 1912, he can state what steps have been taken to complete the inspection and sale; and can he state where any inspection is considered necessary, seeing that a previous one had been made by the Estates Commissioners?

The Congested Districts Board have given instructions for the inspection of this estate which is necessary as the transaction is not one in which the Board are completing proceedings undertaken by the Estates Commissioners. The estate will be dealt with in its proper order, and no unnecessary delay will occur.
