asked the Prime Minister what is the position of those whose interests are vitally affected by the question of land purchase in Ireland; whether this matter will be finally dealt with by the British Government or the Government of the Irish Free State; and if he is aware that the suspense and financial uncertainty of the present position is a source of great hardship to those interested?

I regret that I cannot at present add anything to the replies to questions on this subject which my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies gave to the hon. and gallant Member for Maidstone (Commander Bellairs) on the 9th February last and to the hon. and learned Member for York (Sir J. Butcher) on the 16th February.
