HC Deb 10 March 1859 vol 152 c1620

said, he wished to know whether Her Majesty's Government will be prepared to bring in a Bill for the adjustment of the question of Landlord and Tenant in Ireland, and when.


replied, that his right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney General for Ireland, in consequence of an application to him by an hon. Gentleman opposite, had asked him (the Chancellor of the Exchequer), before he left recently for Ireland, to appoint a day for bringing forward the question. It was due to the House that the views of Her Majesty's Government, with regard to the question of Landlord and Tenant, which had been so long discussed, and respecting which the Government had announced its intention to bring in a Bill, should be known; and on the return of the Attorney General the Government would be ready to fulfil their engagement, and would endeavour to give him a day to state the policy of the Government before Easter.
