asked the Chief Secretary if he will state why the entire Box-well estate, at Duncormack, county Wexford, has not been acquired for the benefit of the evicted tenants; have the Estates Commissioners acquired some of the property and left other portions un-acquired; and, if so, will he give particulars of the portions which have been acquired and those which have not been taken over, and the reasons for the decisions in each case?

The Estates Commissioners have not yet acquired any portion of this estate. Proceedings were instituted under the Evicted Tenants Act for the compulsory acquisition of some 580 acres, but on consideration of objections filed by the owner under Section 2 of the Act the Commissioners decided to discontinue proceedings in regard to some 140 acres, and made an offer for the remaining 440 acres. Against this offer the owner has filed a petition which has yet not been determined.
