HC Deb 13 February 1863 vol 169 c308

said, he wished to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce during the present Session any measure with a view to amend and improve the laws relating to the occupation and tenure of land in Ireland, and to insure to the tenant an adequate protection for his outlay of capital in improvements?


said, it was not the intention of the Government to introduce any measure during the present Session upon the subject to which the hon. Member had referred, it being their opinion that the Bill of 1860 had effected a final settlement of the long-agitated question, and they did not feel disposed to reopen it.
