HC Deb 06 July 1876 vol 230 cc1047-8

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether he will move for a Return of the number of the landed proprietors in each county in Ireland, classed according to residences, showing the extent and value of the property held by each class; and, of the number of landed proprietors in each province, and in the form contained in the Return dated the 7th March 1872, No. 167?


If I understand the hon. Member's Question rightly, the Return which he appears to be anxious to have, is a mere continuation of that obtained by the hon. Member for Westmeath in 1872. It is not my intention to move for such a Return; but if the hon. Member will move for it, I will consider whether the time has arrived when it ought to be given.
