Minister for Justice (Mrs. Owen): Information on Nora Owen Zoom on Nora Owen I am informed by the Registrar of Titles that this dealing refers to an application under section 49, that is, acquisition of title by virtue of long possession, of the Registration of Title Act, 1964, which was lodged on 23 August 1996. I understand that due to their complicated nature, applications under section 49, which require detailed examination of the applicant's claim for registration as owner, take some time to process.

I am also informed that queries were issued to the lodging solicitor on 26 September 1996 to which replies are awaited. The matter cannot proceed until the queries raised are satisfactorily discharged and it is not possible to estimate a completion date at this stage. However, I can confirm that the matter is being expedited by the Land Registry.
