Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry (Mr. Yates): My Department is currently examining this matter with a view to preparing a resale scheme for the disposal of the property in question which is currently owned by the Congested Districts Board.

While I am not in a position to anticipate when the matter will be completed, the work involved will be carried out as expeditiously as possible. My officials will be in touch with the Deputy to inform him when the matter has reached a conclusion.
