Written Answers. - Registration of Title.

  499. Mr. Ellis asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if his Department will complete a dealing in respect of a person (details supplied) in County Leitrim. [17462/04]

  Mr. McDowell: I have been informed by the Registrar of Titles that an application for a Land Commission schedule was lodged on 12 May 1987, to which schedule number V0000WS089655V refers. Land Commission schedule applications are deemed to be registered as of the date of vesting which is prior to the date of lodgement of the documents in the Land Registry. Accordingly, registration in the Land Registry of Land Commission cases is afforded a lower priority than the registration of other dealings. I assure the Deputy that the application is receiving attention in the Land Registry and will be completed as soon as possible.
