asked the Minister for Lands why the Land Commission has delayed purchasing lands (details supplied) for forestry at Puck Island, Lispole, County Kerry.

The delay in the completion of this purchase is entirely due to circumstances outside the control of both the forest and wildlife service and the chief state solicitor and I suggest that the owner might discuss the matter with his solicitor. My Department would welcome an early settlement of this case which has been dragging on for many years now.
