asked the Minister for Lands whether the Forestry Division of his Department has acquired possession of the Budicon lands, Glenturkbeg, County Mayo; and, if not, when they will be acquired.

As I informed the Deputy in reply to a previous question, there are title difficulties in this case which I propose to overcome by the use of the compulsory acquisition machinery of the Forestry Acts, 1946 and 1956. The case is in hands, but I am not in a position to state when it will be brought to a conclusion.
