Written Answers. - County Cork Payment for Land.

398.

asked the Minister for Fisheries and Forestry when a person (details supplied) in County Cork will receive payment for land sold to his Department totalling approximately 40 acres at Ballinglea, Doneraile, County Cork; and the reason for the delay.

Agreement was reached last August for the sale of these lands to my Department. The purchase money will be paid as soon as certain outstanding legal aspects are finalised. These are currently being dealt with between the Chief State Solicitor and the vendor's solicitor. There has been no avoidable delay on the part of my Department.
