Written Answers. - Registration of Title.

Ceist:

464 Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Justice if he will expedite a dealing for a person (details supplied) in County Mayo which has been lodged with the Land Registry as the matter is causing severe hardship. [16173/96]

I am informed by the Registrar of Titles that this dealing refers to an application under Section 49, i.e. acquisition of title by virtue of long possession, of the Registration of Title Act, 1964, which was lodged on 17 May, 1996. I understand that due to their complicated nature, applications under section 49 take some time to process. Queries were issued to the applicant's solicitor by telephone on 5 September, 1996, to which replies are awaited. It is not possible to estimate a completion time at this stage.

However, I can confirm that on receipt of replies, the matter will be expedited by the Land Registry.
