§ MR. GIVAN
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, Whether his attention has been directed to a recent decision of the County Court Judge of Monaghan in the case of Jebb v. Lord Dartrey, being an application to fix the value of the tenant's holding under Clause 1, sub-section 3, of "The Land Law (Ireland) Act, 1881," whereby the judge fixed the price at £66, notwithstanding that a bonâ fide offer of £120 had been made by a solvent and respectable purchaser; and, whether, if the judge had such power, the Government will immediately have the clause amended, to prevent the recurrence of a similar injustice to other tenants?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. W. M. JOHNSON)
, in reply, said, he had only seen the Question on the Paper to-day, and had not yet had time to produce a report of it. If the particulars were supplied to him, he would obtain the necessary information.
